Fiat 124 Crate Engine

I've written about plenty of cars that need engines, but never before have I written about an engine that needs a car.

I know that there are quite a few Fiat fans who read this blog, so I figured I'd throw this out there.

This is a Fiat 124 crate engine. It's still in the crate. The seller calls it a 124A engine, which I believe (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) means it's for a 1966 - 1970 124.

Located in Danville, CA, click here to see the Craigslist ad.

A big thanks to Jon for sending me this link.

Pretty cool. It looks like a 124 pushrod motor. Not the twincam for the Spider, for instance. This would be the motor for the sedan & wagon. It should be 1438cc, the same as the DOHC motor, but only about 2/3 the horsepower. The '69 & '70 Spider motor used the same block and had the distributor mounted on the side like this motor. Later, when the displacement increased to 1608cc and larger, the distributor was moved to a gear on the exhaust cam.
