Re: Toploader conversion from 3 speed

.tom cruz at delta bay mustang in brentwood california has a lot of that stuff, and i think he had a 64 falcn wagon with a bench seat at one time out there for referrnce. In any case he has a lot of falcon performance parts that no one else makes.

427 sohc value

So I'm thinking about putting my sohc motor up for sale but I'm not sure what they're going for now. It's a Holman moody crate motor, missing the carb and alternator, all original, only test fired, but no run time. If anybody has an opinion on its value id like to hear them
Thanks

Re: 221 v8

Yeah pop, the scarcity of the 221 is really why id like one. I need another engine on a stand like i need a hole in the head! But im a huge 289 fan and collect parts for them, and have a 260 and thiught it would be neat to hve a 221 complete just to have to line of engines through 289.
