Default 352 block

I have a 352 block with heads, oil pan and timing cover.
The engine does not turn. As far as I can see, there is no cracks in the block. I am located in Connecticut.
$200 or best offer can take it.

yes, my engine is a 58 with solid lifters and a carter AFB carb. after much discussion both here and at the VTCI forums it appears to be out of a full size 58. I'm pretty sure you helped out in that discussion. I guess I'll use it untill the "right" engine comes along (if ever).

btw, the ID link seems to be broken.

I remember your plight!

It seems to me that the engine you have would be invaluable to someone restoring a period correct 58 FORD.

Have you thought of contacting one of the BIRD salvage yards to find a complete take-out? Do you know the build date on your car?

The build date on my 58 is March 12. so I am looking for an engine assy date before that (as close a possible of course). I did locate a few 58's but the assy dates were months later than my build date. I didn't try anywhere too far from me. I'm in CT, same as the original poster.. now that would be luck......

the casting number B8 is 1958... but could be for full size ford. I don't have my books available. Would you be able to get a peek at the engine assy date? it's hand stamped on the front drivers side of the engine, near the oil dipstick tube
