Wanted- 308 engine

Hello folks! I’m looking for a complete 308 engine somewhere around Denver Colorado. I’m willing to travel a little bit. I would like a complete engine, but it does not need to have the intake or exhaust manifold, but if it does have them that’s cool too. I would like one that is not locked up, and possibly something easy to get running. Please let me know if you have anything. Thanks!

    I don't have any 308's to get rid of, but if you want a 262, I have a few cheap (and I am in Aurora). I have a lot of other parts too

    Get a wide block 262 from Don Crane (Ski4life) and put the 232 head on it for more OOMP.  Your Pacemaker will move very well.

    I would go with what Lance has.  Purchased parts for him and he is great to deal with.  I would not consider putting a engine other than a 308 in a stepdown.  with the engineering that is available today the performance and HP is much better than the 7x engine, besides the only 7x's I have seen have been rebuild and modified.  A 262 with a 232 head or an original 7x can only be seen in my rearview mirror.  Just my opinion...
