    I'm not positive but I don't think so. I love those 2.8's and I know that as of a couple years ago you could still buy them reman. I know this because my dad sold his 84 to a guy that let his son run it into the ground and blew the motor so the guy took it back, put in a new motor, had it painted and I think he takes it to shows now.
