72' Cutlass, Connecting Rods?

I'm having really big issues finding Connecting rods for this engine.

The only one's I've been able to find are $800 for the set... insane. A buddy got connecting rods, bearings, pistons, everything, for less than $300 for his 225slant6...

anybody have any pointers on where to go for these elusive things? I'm not building a hotrod, I'm rebuilding this thing to be a smoothride cruiser.

Everything in the engine is stock.

Halp ;_;

Question

Where have you looked? Where did your buddy find his? Have you tried the obvious places like NAPA, Advance & Auto Zone?

Does it matter? 225 /6 is far from any engines that went into a '72 Cutlass.

Yes, I do have the old ones. Unless the shop ditched' em, but I doubt it.

Wait... does that mean that Kanter only has Old parts re-furbished? Or are they new??

And THANK you. I'm gonna call em tomorrow
