So I found this engine in an estate sale for the price of $350 OBO, there are a ton of chev 350's as well but do you all think that this could be worth it or is it too far gone?

Jason, you need to check the block over for cracks and to see if it will move or is seized.

Ya one of my biggest worries is that it was stored outside and if they didnt cover it what the damage would be on the inside from the rain.

Also, put a breaker bar on the crank and see if it'll turn over.

$350 is too much considering the risk of the insides looking like the outsides.
