There's a complete 305 V6, clutch and 4 speed transmission in Readlyn, Iowa which is about 40 miles from me - asking $200.00 - so they are around - as I said earlier I have a 1968 305 with an 375 hydramatic behind it - bought years years ago as an extra - at this time I will never use it. I live in NE Iowa. So there are engines.
