Ummm, that's a shame, but at least it will be put together correctly.
The original 1300 engine which came in it had a complete rebuild by Carlo not long after the car arrived in Vancouver. The crew unloading the car had run it over a deck tie down bracket and poked a hole in the sump, leaving a trail of oil down off the ship and across the storage lot. We had to quickly drive to Portland to Ron Tonkin Alfa to buy a new sump bottom and install it in the storage lot so that Bill and his wife could drive it to Seattle. Bill was later able to convince the insurance company to pay for a complete rebuild. Don't know whatever happened to that engine.
