I have a friend in town who owns a machine shop.    A person brought in a 1941 Cadillac engine years ago.  After some time he decided to make a street rod and abandoned the engine block and heads at the machine shop.  Wondering if there is any interest in this motor.    Best Regards,    Hugh

     Some rust on cast iron is no big deal, the question of whether it is useful depends on if it is broken, freeze cracks from winter cold, cracked cylinders or cracks in or between valve seats, probably the most common reason a block is rejected for rebuilding, which is not a rare circumstance. So has this block and heads been checked out? Maybe not, but magna fluxing would tell the tale. If the block is deemed good someone whose rebuilder has just condemned his block is going to want a good one badly. A bit of a gamble investing in the testing but if good someone absolutely will buy it sooner or later on the Cad LaSalle Club site. Anything not cast iron is ruined at this point. My opinion.
