Gary,

There is a '56 Custom Cab C-750 Big Job in a junk yard near my home.  It
has an original looking V8 still in it.  It is a complete truck.  The cab
sheet metal is kind of rusty but the COE specific parts look salvageable.
It can probably be had very cheap.  Do you know of anyone that may be
interested?  I would hate to see it scrapped.  I believe the owner is
having to close down his junk yard soon.

Howdy.
I'd like to know if a 239 YBlock will fit the same bellhousing as a 292
YBlock.
Any positive/ negative comments on the 239?

Thanks...
Mark.]

Its REEEEAL little!  If you are swapping it for the 292, i wouldnt. find a 292, and re-do it, or re-do yours.  I'd keep the 239 for a 54 show car that had to be original, but thats about it.  the 239 will give you the same crummy milage, with 1/2 of the power.

just my opinion.

In reply to my question,...

>>When I bought the truck there was a scratch resistant paint on the bed

Dennis replied:...

>>Over here we have company's called Line-x and Rhino linings that are spray
on bed liners.  Another company is Permatech. Use your browser search and look up spray on bed liners.<<

But they cover the bottom and I want to retain the bed wood.
I just need a scratch resistant paint to go on the sides.

Any help?

Paul
