Was hoping to find a flathead

Just spent most of the weekend at the autofair in Charlotte and was hoping I could locate a flathead. Spent a lot of time looking and saw a lot of other neat things but came home empty handed.

What do you think he is wanting for it? Whereabouts in WV? The southern part is a lot closer than Charlestown and points north.

Not at all sure what he's asking, It's located in Clendenin, about 20 miles north of Charleston.

19fifty4, don't know what your looking for in particular, but, i have an 8rt out of a truck, 49-51. it's a virgin block, never been rebuilt, but needs full rebuild. i'm in orange county ny and am asking 400$. i will stand behind this motor not being cracked! if interested, i would pull heads and take pictures.

I wish I lived close to you, that sounds like a good deal for a Flathead that has never been apart. Especially sense you say you will guarantee it isn't cracked

If anyone is around the North Central NE area and looking there is an auction next weekend (9/27) with 40+ Flathead V8's and tons of other stuff:

Upcoming Auction Page of Fowlkes Realty & Auction

I'd love to go but it would be $200 just in fuel to get there and back.
