Looking for an EA81....for Fiat 500 swap..

I just had an swap kit made in the UK for fitting a Subaru engine in my 1972 Fiat 500.
I plan on installing an EA81 for reliability and simplicity. Anyone have one for sale? Anyone have some suggestions on which engine year to buy?

Make sure when you are ready to do the swap, to make a thread somewhere, I'd like to see the build!
As for differences in engine, '81-'83 EA81 will have Solid Lifters, the 1984 EA81 Automatics had Hydro lifters, the Manual trans cars didn't get hydro lifters till 1985.
