I once bought a 300 from a private seller for $300, its always a gamble if you haven't heard it run, mine always had a pretty heavy rattle, which I never properly diagnosed until it striped the timing gear, found my lifters were stuck. Turned out to be a pretty good engine, but you never know... if you have to pull it yourself, try to stay under 200, unless you test drive it first, if its already pulled and tested by someone else,3-4 is quite reasonable
