He bought them new and never did anything with them. He liked to show them off, but never did anything with them.
He did not have any children and his wife won't sell them.   shruggy

It might be too soon for her to think about that.  Sorry for your loss.

 My only point is not about trying to get one of these engines, but whoa to those who collects things and thinks they will go with them when they die.  It just a waste.
Kind of like having a car that just sits there in your garage without ever enjoying them. Or a trophy wife you can't touch.  lessened learned.
Or having 6 cars that one day you will restore. Life is short people. Wake up.

I guess that since you don't know when you are going to croak, it's a tough call knowing what to do!!!!!!!!    smilielol

On the flip side at least he owned them..I am sure even just drinking a beer and staring at them in the garage put him in the running for king of his block.

Hopefully with time the engines may come available.. Heck, she may get just as much enjoyment looking at them as her late husband did..... But, if she wants to sell, then hopefully you have nurtured the relationship so she'll reach out to you for help in letting them go.....

Life is short.... As soon as I'm done with this current Hemi C500 project, my next project will be converting my Daytona to a manual 4speed... 'Cause, that's what will put a big smile on my face......

Eventually, she will likely come around.     These things have a way of working out.   Usually, it involves the color green.

I'm sorry to hear the news. I assume we all pass, but it is sad for those who remain.

 I am not in the market for one. (they won't be cheap). I am just sorry he did not have the 100 years he wanted to install one.

Maybe his Hemi's were his children. In the wife's lifetime, she or her POA will sell them or whom ever is her executor/trix. Sorry for your loss. RIP Sir.
Which is it though, 3 or 4 Hemi's?

I thought he had 4, but was corrected by a mutual friend who said it was three. He was a older co-worker retired Deputy Sheriff.

I can just picture a person (the wife) dusting off the 3 Hemis like she would furniture.
