Default What'* a good price for a Series II SC?

Someone I don't know wanted to do a flat-out engine swap with his NA 3800 GP. He found out about the wiring job and just let the engine sit. This is a pulled Series II with a supercharger, and I don't know anything about it, except that it was going to run just fine had the current owner swapped it. What'* a good price range for an engine like this?

I'm about to find that out. Could I for the moment get 2 ballpark figures for a 60K engine and a 160K engine?

That is a very nice price. I'm going to see how badly he doesn't need that engine anymore and aim low. Very low.

This is what we in the shopping industry like to call "unfair."

Let'* suppose that I should avoid taking that engine apart, but I'd still like to inspect it. What would be some things I should look for to get a better price estimate?

Check for coolant in the oil.
Turn the crank with a socket and take compression readings.
Turn the */C pulley by hand and listen for noise / look for play.
