    An absolutely complete K code engine with all the unique parts might be worth that. But if anything is missing, probably not. If, for example, it has a Holley carb, chop a thousand dollars off. Things to look for- Correct water pump, fuel pump, carb, air cleaner, fan, alternator, manifolds, and distributor. A bad water pump hole in the block might indicate scaling rust inside the engine.

    Hello Sir,
    I touched base with you about an NOS HiPo crank a month or so ago. Well, I was talking to a guy about a 65 block and he asked if I needed a crank. I told him I had a line on an NOS HiPo crank and he got interested. Said he has a complete HiPo engine he is thinking of selling. Says the top end is disassembled but everything is there. Said he was going to put it in a K-code GT fastback he owned in the 70s and recently got back, then he found out where the original engine is and plans to get that back.

    He says the engine is still running original bearings.

    I asked what he might want for it, he said $5,000. Other than a bad threads in one water pump mounting hole, he says it is a solid engine.

    I know this is a random question with no pics but any initial thoughts?

    Interesting. An NOS 289HP crankshaft is such an unusual item there is really no "typical" price for it. They were not specially made, but they were specially selected for hardness, and will show the mark accordingly. I would say if it is indeed a NOS 289HP crankshaft, it's worth between $300-$500.

    The pistons and rods sound like track-only items, pop-ups would be a real pain on the street. Aluminum rods are overkill. Other than the thicker caps and bolts, the 289HP rod (later also used in the BOSS 302) was no different than the stock 260/289 rod. A shop near here sells shot-peened stock 302 rods, which they warrant to 7000 rpm. So, how fast you gonna go to Dairy Queen?

    Hello, Sir,

    Thought I would pose this question to you in a message. If you are up to commenting, I really appreciate your thoughts:

    I have the opportunity to buy a new, never run HIPO 289 crankshaft. Have not inspected it but know to look for specific markings. Evidently bought new 42 years ago and it has been sitting ever since.

    Would you have a thought on what it might be worth? Has been stored in a climate controlled garage.

    The seller also has new, never used Mickey Thompson aluminum rods, TRW pop-up pistons, and a crane solid lifter cam.


    Thanks for all of your comments on the forum. Your expertise is very helpful!
