Most people do rattle can them to be honest, and that seems to be about the average price complete 440s fetch these days.

Just looked very slapdash to me , the overspray etc, I guessed this must be the going rate as I can only find 318 motors , a 440 recently went on eBay for £720. It was starting bids of £450 I think ?

Been a long time since I last saw a 440 for sale under a grand, no doubt they are out there if you can find 'em...
