Any thoughts?

Will this fit ok, how much work will be involved will it be better repairing the 352ci ive been quoted anywhere between 1000-2000 / $1580/$3160 to strip down and repair fully?

Hello Barry,

I'm Italian and maybe I'm going to say a silly thing but I will repair the 352 as long as the 430 will be a nightmare at european gas prices . Some yeas ago I had and Edsel citation with 410 and was terrible for my wallet. Last but not least the original engine when repaired will be like new and if you will ever sale the car will match the vin tag.
