Hello I am clearing out my father-in-law estate. he has a i4 w/spica . looking to sell. He had it running on a stand and wrapped in plastic for storage. engine number is AR00551*07159* I believe it to be a 1968/69. what is the worth of it complete? also have various valve covers and more. am I at the right place?

I think 0551 is a 1750 and that would agree with 1968/69, too. It would be good to know the region you and the engine are located in and a picture or two is helpful.

Right website, wrong forum. If you scroll down towards the bottom there is a classifieds section. You would want to post your items in the Parts for Sale section. Folks will want to see pictures and a location as previously suggested.

According to Fusi, your engine came from a 1971 Spider. Most likely you will need to crate it or strap it on a pallet to ship it.

In any case, this also agrees with my own collection of engine chassis information - being that this number would be from a series 2 USA 1750.
This is different from '69, or series 1 USA 1750 - not only by number, but also in that the SPICA FI will be different than S1 SPICA. Otherwise, virtually the same as S1 - except the numbers.
You are precisely correct. I missed the Berlina and GTV's in there. Slightly more Spiders made with the 551 than GTV's, and both about double the Berlina production numbers.
