Motor physically will not turn over...

So, after having my trans/diff rebuilt at Shep the shop that has my car reinstalled the motor and trans. Went to start and all it does is click, swapped a well known good battery and had the same result.

Put a wrench on the crank and the motor wouldn't budge, the wheels (while up on lift) turn freely. You can shift through each gear without issue.

The shop pulled the motor back out and put a wrench on the crank and it STILL won't budge. The car has only sat for 3 months with a recent oil change (just prior to diff grenading). They took the starter completly off, same result.

The motor is completely stock and was never pulled apart. What are the chances of a motor "seizing up" from just sitting there? Any other thoughts? Suggestions? The motor has 25K miles...

It sat full of used oil, or new?

I changed the oil about 2-3 weeks prior to diff grenading...

Easier then dropping the subframe if you have a lift and cherry picker.

sounds like the drivetrain is fine but your motor isn't. Maybe the diff grenading harmed the motor somehow?

The motor was running fine when I DROVE it up to the tow truck... So I don't think the diff did anything.

yeah thats a doozy. the crank not moving freely is concerning. That tells me something isn't right. Was the motor stored indoors for the 3 months the car was out of commission? You may want to consider pulling the head to check the cylinders.. not sure what else to reccomend.

Maybe trying to put some penetrating oil in the cylinders and see if that loosens anything up.
