These two web sites have good engine code information...

Check out eBay to get a feel for what these are selling for. I have been keeping my eyes open for a WS block & tri-power for my 66, but not nsure if I want to spend the money. From what I have seen, a "show quality" complete tripower sells around $1,800.

Not sure about the engine, will be worth most if from a 4spd car. Seems like they range from $500 - $5,000+ depending on what was done.
