Re: 427 Side Oiler Value. Tell me what you think.
As stated the top end is impressive as a tunnelport intake and correct heads.
The bore is correct , Looks like a standard stock crank cast iron, not a $ steal crand but a very good 427 crank
Rods are lemans rods that came in 69-70 428scj, 65-67 427 , 66-68 hiperformance 427
Carbs are low risers that came on 427
Starting at top carbs are worth $600.00 apiece even if they need rebuilt and probaby do. Tp intake looks like a ford part over $2000.00 .
Thats over 3 grand , I seen them for more , Ask where the linkage is if he has it for the carbs.
A man I know has tp heads asking 2000 for them here
Rods are lemans can be bought around 450.00
Thats around 6 grand so far
Block has screw freezes , good side oiler 4 grand easy if it is ok. For that money he would not mind you or him having that block checked for any cracks or flaws to be worth it
Something has hit piston like the valves were going too close and striking. Could even look like a screw or something was on top of the piston , like someone accadently dropped one in one of the carbs at one time and stopped the motor right before more damage, look at the head over that piston
Defintley needs to be rebuilt , thats gona cost ya as well checking as you go. The price is worth being all is there IF he allows you to have block checked, Busted up it will take time at a swap meet to get 12 grand back looking for profit .
If block checks out and main thing is will that 12 grand put you out . To a man living on the street he could not afford the oil in it but Bill Gates , 12 grand would be pepsi money . What I am saying is there is not a price on fe motors of that magnatude but what one is willing to pay. I am building one now and will have more than that in my 427 but not paid all at once, as I get money so .....
If you have cash throw down 9 grand in front of him and start there. Can always go up but can never go down once you agree on 12 grand. I maybe wrong somewhat but I should be close. Others will follow that knows more than I, hope some here helps ya.
