I have been shopping around for a rebuild kit for my 74 impala that has 150,000 miles on her. I found several on Ebay for around $350-$450 with namebrand brand new parts, are these good deals? One more question, around how much would a mech shop charge for rebuild work. I would like to be equipped with some price info before I jump in the deep end.
On a typical engine overhaul for our customers the price is around $2000. This includes disaasembly, all machine work, all new parts, reassembly and paint. This is for a top notch cut no corners kind of job, but does not include R&R from the car. Hope this helps.
