A Hemi rod is 6.850" long with a big end for a 2.375" journal. A 440 rod is 6.760" long for the same journal size.
Before all the other aftermarket rods were available, these were common rods being used in offset ground stroker engines.

AHHHH, the days of actual thought and craftsmanship when you had to MAKE stuff fit instead of simply BUYING it are long gone.

Unless it is totally "used up" it is well worth that amount of money.

Key word is "Freshen up" what was replaced and how abused are the parts thet where reused?

If its a trusted and honest source it sounds like a decent deal, if its like alot of people out in the world it could be a bunch of junk thrown together to recoupe some money..........
