140 Engine Tucson Craigslist

I've got a fellow who's all jazzed up to buy this engine for $5K+ and have me install it. He doesn't seem swayed by the notion that I can build something similar. I thought I would at least see if I could figure out who built this engine and if he has a good reputation.
I only looked at it briefly. Things that jump out at me are vague description of valve seats, no mention of bolting the flywheel and 600 carburetor way too big.
I don't think I will get involved but should at least do some checking.
Anyone know who this is in Tucson?

Nothing comes up for a "Casa de Corvair" internet search...is that a business?

Looks like no baffles under cylinders. Beware

Thanks for the reply. I don't want to get involved in a nightmare or see anyone throw their money away. I've got plenty to do and someone having an enjoyable Corvair experience is more important than whether I get a job or not.
