Hi, I am looking for a 289/302 low milage well built street-able semi-race motor for my RCR MKl GT40.
If this is an XE- numbered 4 bolt 289 block it would be an original and rare GT40 race programme piece.
Excellent question. It was the owner himself that sold the engine as the car is undergoing full restoration and it is not the original motor. However it spent the last 20 years including many years in the vintage race circuit.Shouldn't that 5S003 Motor go back to 5S003 ? Assuming the partial ford vin checks out with pardee' ?
Thank you for your note. Before you wrote I had already purchased the motor from Shelby 5S003. We are in the process of fitting the needed components to go back into the GT.Michael
I have a 302 sitting on an engine stand ready to drop into a GT40. About 2000 miles since it was completely rebuilt. Canton oil pan and short water pump. It runs very well. I pulled it out of the RCR GT last fall when we did an engine swap. Let me know if you are interested and I can send pics and details.
