FAR TOO MANY Americans are proving NOT to be worthy of the incredible bounty of their unbelievable Country, which was given to them by the Blood, Treasure and Sacrifice of those before them.

All the costs I am providing are based on the engine being a solid E condition. One that is marked up with some chips might be as little as half these prices.
If you want link couplers then a 370 GP7, $100; a 360/64 Santa Fe PA/PB, $200. A 405 Silver Streak PA, $200.
There are far more knuckle coupler diesels to choose from. A 371 GP7 would be about $125. A 466 Comet PA might be found for $125. A 472 Santa Fe PA might be $175. A 497 New Haven PA would be $200, the 494/95 NH, or NP PA/PA set would be $500.
From there the diesels start to get more expensive. A 372 UP GP7 would be $200; the 374/75 T&P GP7 would be $300; a NP PA/PB/PA set would be $700.
Remember these are upper end estimates for E condition engines, VG condition would be about 2/3 these prices. There are some frequent sellers on the MTF, perhaps one of them has more accurate pricing info.
