Hello
I bought myself a wrecked VT last year so I could use the motor in an early model Holden. I have since decided to go a different route so I am going to sell the V8. I have been told by someone that the VM prefix motor of which mine is, is actually a roller cammed motor and worth more than other standard 5.0ltrs.
Would anyone have an idea what I could expect to get for it? I has done about 200k so it would more than likely need a freshen up. It will go onto Ebay first and if no luck there the Trading Post.
Thanks
John

Hello Exec24
I'm located in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. If I got around $2000 for it I'd be happy. One bloke from Queensland contacted me about and let me know it that it was a roller motor. He even suggested breaking it up and selling it for the parts. I might run it on Ebay again.
Cheers
John
