Can anyone on the forum give me an idea as to what a 1969 428 Super Cobra Jet engine with Ram Air is worth. It has all of the original parts accept the intake. It also has all of the Ram Air with it and the oil cooler. The engine is in excellent condition with the matching numbers automatic transmission. It is from a 1969 Mercury Cyclone CJ.
Is the oil cooler for the power steering? or is this the oil cooler for the SCJ's? It makes a difference in the value of the motor!
The reason I asked the question some people see the oil cooler in front of the power steering unit, and think they have a SCJ.
problem is - you're asking a value question at a MUSTANG board when you probably should be over at the TORINO forum, for example. That ram air setup is TOTALLY different than for the 428CJ Mustang Ram Air assembly. Also the brackets for the oil cooler on the Torino/Cyclone are different and carry different part numbers than the Mustang variants. I would also confirm that the SCJ unique parts (ie front balancer counterweight, Lemans rods, etc) are still intact with the engine. I used to be pretty good at valuing parts and such, but lately, I have been WAY off - for example, I just sold a complete 69/70 rear seat folddown assembly on Ebay for 1824 bucks!! I would never have guessed it would sell for that. Likewise with the shakers I have sold on Ebay in the past several months. If I were you, I would verify internal part numbers, take plenty of pics and throw it on Ebay with NO RESERVE - watch the bidding get insane, probably way beyond what you would expect.
