After inital tear down of the top end I am very happy with what I see.

The pistons appear to be standard bore, all cylinders look to be in very nice shape they do have a slight lip from the rings, the lifters look brand new, my guess this is a low mileage motor that got was treated well. I can't wait to get it cleaned up and magnafluxed.

Here are some pictures.

You know, that carb alone might be worth what you paid for the motor!!

Got the list numbers on it still?

Between the carb and the GT 390 manifolds with the heat riser I would say it was a sure bet not to lose money. :) I am proof everyone gets a good deal sometime, which feels great compared to getting raked over the coals.

The carb is part number C60F-9510-N List # 3557.

That's a great engine for the price. Tons of small but expensive parts to find if you had to get them all sperately. How are you going to build it?

A great start! Was it just Mustangs that got the chrome dress up option on the '67 GT 390's? Chrome valve covers, oil dipstick, chrome radiator cap.
