Motor was wasted, ruined

The PO insisted that he keep the motor and tranny, then discovered he had let the cat sit so long it had ruined, unsalvageable.

The PO had decided the engine was a 428, and would not sell the driveline with the car...the irony of this is later on after doing the work of pulling the driveline, the engine had thrown a rod-literally through the #1 cylinder exited externally...the input shaft of the toploader had teeth sheared from it, and the ring gear from the rear dif. had teeth missing from it.
The car had really been hammered on hard!
