1966 mustang convertible sprint 200, manual steering and brakes
It appears I may be able to purchase a “never run” 250 engine (1979 vintage). The story is that it was smuggled out of the Romeo engine plant and has been in barn storage all this time. It has some rags stuffed in the intake and exhaust ports and turns over freely. Pics under the valve cover convinced me it has never been run. My original plan was to strip the head and maybe distributor and carb and put them on my 66 200 (mustang). But then it occurred to me I might be forever known as “the guy” that wrecked a valuable NOS engine that should have been left intact for a concourse restoration. I’m assuming because of the year (79) this probably isn’t the case but figured I should check first. It also comes with some extra head gaskets which is the subject of another post. Thanks.
