The intake says 8BA 8RT & B520 (or 8520 or 6520). The block is painted black, heads red and intake silver. Its obviously been repainted & the heads and block have green paint under you can see in chips. Comes w/transmission. Guy who has it took it on trade for fairlane parts for his brother who wanted it and backed out. "Supposedly" it runs but sitting on ground. Has a new altermnator bolted to it but otherwise looks like original parts and carb. All complete. Oil looks light dirty with no water. Engines turns freely.

Being he took it on trade for brother (& I know these guys a little and know his brother was looking for a 239), I believe he was convinced it ran when he took it. (He has 5 66 & earlier vehicles, all 289's. Knows a bit on horsetrading.)

Ohio location

Any help on the value of this package.
Is the trans overdrive or not? I would think 4 to 600. would be fair-you also said had alt. so maybe 12 volt====By the way I'm also in ohio
