You Can Now Buy A 5.0-Litre Ford Mustang Crate Engine At Walmart

Where do you go for a crate engine? Well, in the UK it’s fairly difficult to get your hands on an engine that’s delivered to you in a box. But it looks like you folks across the pond have now got it incredibly easy, with them being sold at your local Walmart of all places. Seriously, I’m not kidding, you can buy a Coyote motor from the same place you buy your washing up liquid. Click here to go to the web page.

If you thought this was too good to be true, then our friends over at Shifting Lanes did a search on this, and what came up was one hell of a surprise. They found that the Ford Coyote isn’t the only crate engine Walmart sells. They sell a host of other engines from Duramax to Kawasaki bike engines.

There are plenty of places you can buy a crate engine from in America (unlike the UK, dammit), but would you buy one from Walmart? At a price of $8,700, it doesn’t seem so bad, but don’t expect any aftercare from a place like that. Buy it from a specialist and most will be more than happy to help with installation and supporting parts, but I doubt a massive corporate entity like Walmart would be interested at all in providing that kind of service.

But, let’s say you really know your stuff, won’t need any aftercare, and just want a quick delivery to carry on with your build. Well in that case, there’s only one left in stock as of the time of writing, so get in quick!

  1. Just a friendly warning… Those are all sold by third parties on Walmarts website, so you don’t have the ability to return it to the store etc

  2. Yup, you can also buy your casket from Walmart. That way, after you’ve tweaked out that engine and wrapped yourself around a tree, your wife will already be prepared to dispose of your idiot carcass. 😀
