I have a running engine with approximately 10,000 miles. It is a correct WT code 389 for a '65 GTO with manual transmission.
I am rebuilding the numbers-matching engine to my '65 GTO convertible. I will need to keep some items off this engine for my numbers-matching engine, but I will have a long block with some additional items included. A port-matched correct intake manifold, re-chromed correct valve covers, oil pan, timing cover, and push rod cover are among the extras that will be included. I have some other parts to add with it as well. I am only keeping what I need to put my numbers-matching engine back in my car. I have an extra correct distributor and rebuildable correct fuel pump and Carter AFB that can go with it.
I have videos of this engine running. I just started taking my car apart so I cannot run it now.
I am asking $3,500 for it. I can deliver it within 100 miles of the Omaha area. This engine can be installed and ran as is. I would replace the rear main seal before installing it. If you want to rebuild it like I am rebuilding mine with dished pistons to reduce the compression for 91 octane fuel, you will be starting with a standard bore block. The person I bought it from many years ago honed the cylinders when it had 40,000 miles and installed standard bore Badger pistons. He built it loose so it's noisy at a cold start. It quiets down once it warms up. It runs great and I have not had any trouble with during the 13-plus years its been in my '65 GTO. I'd keep it if I wasn't rebuilding the original engine to my car.
If you're interested I can give you contact information and try to post a video of it running.
