No, I dont know the seller. Price isnt listed either. Just thought you guys might like to see it.

I wonder how much it is worth these days.

It's a 820-A, which were the last run of Boss engines.

For somebody trying to restore one, with the right date codes you could probably
Start at $10k and go from there.

It doesn't have the correct carb on it, other than that it looks pretty complete.
Still has the oil cooler lines hanging off it.

Nice find.

Holmans son probably has a new one still in a crate from back in the 70s for less.

The way I see it is anybody willing to pay more than say $15,000 would be someone trying to restore an original Boss 9, anymore than that you may as well buy a brand new one for your hotrod project.
