Your flathead V-8 is 239.4 cubic inches and 100 HP. You probably could sell it fast on ebay.

I'ts value depends on the quality of the rebuild. I would say at least $900.00-$1000.00 or more. It is probably an 8BA and they are getting hard to find.

Try listing it with vintage ford clubs, you will get alot of activity. I sold a 51 merc engine and O.D tranny with 77545 original miles for $2700.
