Default Trashed head and/or block

I'm located in dallas. If I could find something locally that would be great because I think shipping on a block would be excessive. Any damage is ok as long as the exhaust flange mates fine to the head. The block doesn't matter much either. rod through it ok.

1.6 and 1.8

I am in houston, have a trashed 1.6L. Not sure on cause of death, I think my lil bro both overheated it and ran it out of oil. He's good at that.

Doesn't sound like I have what you want, but worth a try. I've got a 1.8 that was running when I removed it, but was burning 1 qt of oil every hundred miles. More of a core than junk engine. I'm in Amarillo. I might meet you in Childress though if the price was right.

Any damage is ok? I do have a VVT head which um... yeah. Still all I was going to use it for was practice porting...
