What should a 429 PI engine sell for with HD cast iron tailshaft C-6


Recommended Posts

I am not a BB guy and have no idea what these bring. I have done some searching but have not found any for sale at this time. What should I get for a Standard Bore 429 PI a 1972 I believe. It will require a bore and complete rebuild. It is taken apart and will run the block through the molasses to get all the crud out of the water jacket and surface rust. Crank has been in garage stored on end with grease on it.

I have the entire engine and also have a Forged Steel crank out of a HD 429 from a heavy Ford truck.

I have no idea what to ask for this engine. Has the factory headers also.

The C-6 has the cast iron tail shaft.

WHAT SHOULD I ASK FOR THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION????

Good PI cores can go anywhere from $400-$800.

 

The short block is worth less.

 

The forged steel truck crank is kind of an oddity and is a case where rare (relatively) doesn't equal valuable. They are not interchangeable with the standard passenger car stuff without extensive machining.

Would you sell the trans separately?  Do you know if it is from a car or truck as they are different.  I am looking for one with a cast iron tailshaft, but it needs to be from a Mustang and not a Torino or Truck.

Thanks from MotorCity Mustang!

It was taken out of a North Carolina Highway Patrol car I think in 1972 so an LTD I guess back then.

I would sell separate not something the anyone would want for numbers matching.
