Anyone know about how much it costs to pull a Chevy Chevelle motor?
Hopefully someone has some experience here and can give me an estimate on costs.

It will depend on the mechanics experience with the model and year and the hourly rate for labor in your area. Some mechanics will have a "book" rate which they will quote to you. The book tells them what they should charge for a certain job no matter how long it really takes. Pulling an engine out of an older car is very simple and can be done with an intermediate level of tools and an engine hoist which can be rented when the pull time comes. I would ask around to family and friends who may be able to help and save you money first.

just to pull it out of the car? if so then it takes about 30 minutes...to r & r an older chevy i'd say about 10 hours labor time to do a nice clean jobSource(s): 25 years in auto salvage industry

Chop shop vans can have those things out in two minutes. The older ones are easy. Putting it back in will be the hard part.

You do not ought to make a clone, you'll make a 'new' one from scratch. There's a metal stamping manufacturer that has the fashioned frame panel stamping dies & is making company-new our bodies, entire with the doorways & hoods. Sure there is a internet sight for them someplace... They simply began making '70's Mustang frame panels ....
