Do you plan to sell it complete or part it out?

Get on a Sunbeam Tiger board for maximum $ on the block , I also wouldn't rule out Cobra guys either.

That 5 bolt bell housing will drive the value.

Understand, there is nothing special about a HIPO block, but it's the caps mated to it that make the difference. If you align hone the correct caps to another 289 block, no difference.

Really, all you have is a HiPo short block with the wrong pistons, & one HiPo head. It's unknown if the crank has been turned, right ?

As it is, $1,000 would be a fair price to buyer and seller.. if I were in your shoes, I'd buy another HiPo head, and have the motor restored / overhauled to the highest standard that I could afford, and sell it as a turn key replacement for an early motor. That would probably gain you 3.000-$4,000 profit after expenses.

All of the 289's I've worked on have the 289 cast into the valley but I don't see anything on this engine. Is it because it's a '64? And didn't the early 289 heads have a double dot next to the 289?

5 Bolt blocks didn't have the 289 in the valley. Hi po heads had the double dot , nothing else.

The engine I referred to is a prototype '65 HiPo cast in 1963 and it has the 289 cast in the valley with two dots located above the 289 on the heads. I couldn't upload the PDF file because of its size but it's an article by Bob Mannel written in Fairlaner magazine in 2005.

I've seen it . It is really unique like many prototypes are ( I have a fair number of prototype parts myself). The trouble is some things caught on camera do not get put into production parts.

@supershifter2 I'm pretty sure in the first post I explained why there is only HiPo head. ^^^^^

I plan to sell it complete. I'd have no use for a block with no main caps for sure. That being said, if someone didn't want to ship the block I guess I could disassemble the short block and just ship the other parts.

HiPo Block Stamping ID Help!!!

A member on the HiPo forum asked me to check for a stamping on a machined tab on motor. I just went and looked and if I'm looking at the correct tab it has a "P" stamped on it. Any ideas on why this is?
