The seller says the Lotus-engineered, four-valve, aluminum-block V8 is in complete working order and comes with pretty much everything you need to transplant it into a willing donor car.
You’ll get all the gubbins like the pulleys, brackets, belts, power steering pump, alternator, A/C compressor, tensioner, oil pump, lines, cooler, starter, ignition wires, custom K&N air filter, Auto flex plate, ceramic coated headers, wiring harness and PCM.
We’re told the LT5 spent some time under the hood of a highly-modified 1957 Chevrolet Cameo pickup, but eventually the owner decided to go another route and it was removed.
While we’re puzzled at the truck owner’s decision, it means that you could get your hands on a complete LT5 engine for just $8,999. Plus, you also get a 14-day money-back return policy, just in case you can’t fit the LT5 under the hood of your Pontiac Solstice project car.
One thing’s for sure, any vehicle would be about 10x better with this ZR-1 engine under the hood.
