Got an opportunity

A local guy set a 71 Hornet coupe up for drag. Custom blue and yellow paint that looks really nice, 9-inch Ford rear, suspension mods, fuel cell, etc. He wants 3K for it sans engine and trans. I know I could give him 2500. Thought about finding another motor for it, he says he has tried a 290, a 304 and a 401 to no avail. I figure it has a 6-cyl front cradle (K-member) in it. Anyone here interested in such a project? It is really a nice piece and I hate to see it crushed, but am too broke to do anything with it. I will get pics if anyone is interested.
