To give you a little history, the Cruiser's odometer read 5000 miles when a friend and I got it from a government auction. Apparently it had been sitting in U.S. Customs for about 15 years because it was used to smuggle drugs from Mexico, so I'm not sure how many miles are on it, but I know it's not just 5000. I just put a few hundred miles on it the last year while I was working on the body and interior, and now I'm putting a 350 in it, which is why I'm selling this engine. I have no idea what the compression is, but I'm pretty sure the valves need some attention and the carburator needs adjusting since that was just rebuilt. As far as I can tell it's all original (minus smog) and has never been taken apart. I only changed the valve cover gasket and exhaust manifold gasket. As for shipping, I'm not sure if it would be worth it since that would be at least $100. I will check into it though.
