Default 4.3 V6 Engine, bored, balanced, rebuilt - Rockawy, NJ

Hey Everyone - Sorry to lead in with a "please buy my engine" Post, but hopefully you can forgive me. Had been working on bringing my old high school truck back to life - an S-Series GMC Jimmy. Long story short; my now wife and I got pregnant, I had to sell my house in NJ when I couldn't get her to leave NYC, and I don't have enough arms or legs to give up to afford space for projects in NYC. So, my project was scrapped but the engine I had rebuilt for it went to a friends house on the outside chance I might get another project... Well, his wife is now giving him the "how long is this going to live here" glare... Time to really try to sell this thing.

The engine is located near Rockawy, NJ. I finally negotiated enough time with the garage guys to wire up the trailer hitch for my vehicle so I can arrange to bring the engine to you. I started putting the accessory brackets and such back on the engine as I was going to replace the rollers, alternator, etc.. Never got to that and I can remove the accessory brackets if you would like.
Asking $1500.

Comp Cams Magnum Hydraulic Roller Cam and Roller kit - CL09-412-8
Melling High pressure oil pump M-55A
Low Friction coated aluminum pistons
Comp Cam bee hive springs and valve retainers
Chevy Performance Parts bolt kit used for heads, etc.
Heads rebuilt with beehive springs, and all other works by P&W Automotive Machining out of Whippany, NJ
Boiled, line bored, bored .030 over, balanced, new freeze plugs, double roller timing chain, etc., etc.
Engine Stand will be included with sale.

Any questions, please let me know and I'll try to answer them.

OK guys and gals, I haven't received any questions or comments... so am I that far off on price? Am I just an unknown person?
If you were selling this engine... does anyone have any suggestions?? Where might I try to sell something these days? I keep getting spam on Craigslist.

main issue i see is thats its only a 4.3. if it was a 5.7 i could see it selling faster but if my 94 (which is a 4.3) needed a new engine i would do a V8 Swap instead of putting a 4.3 back in. as im sure theres many others that feel the same way. your audience will be small since its only a 4.3 and might only be someone that has a s10 where a v8 swap might not be as practical. i think your price is good with the paperwork but is just going to be the demand of that engine that will hurt you. when i would sell things on ebay i would list them so they wouldnt cost me anything to list only to sell. you might be able to get a bigger audience that way. CL you have to deal with spam and scams so i dont even deal with them anymore

Thanks for the feedback. I"ll take a look at Ebay and give that a go next.
