Charlie, What I'd like to find is a new NOS 1966/67 Ford 289 block. Or a stock block that has not been bored and would only need honed. Or it could be in long or short block form. I would like to build a stock motor. Someone has one I just have to find it.
Try Steve Francis at Main Street Motorsport, New Milford. CT.
He may find you a good used 289 block only needing a hone.
He got me a '66 block a few years back and shipped it to the UK at a very reasonable price.
