: 71 454 engine

I am selling my 71 454 - 365 HP engine from my car. It is NOT the original engine to my car. Selling because I am planning an LS Swap.

Engine was rebuilt by the former owner of my car 2 years ago and has < 1000 miles on the rebuild. Engine is + 030. It does have a .540 lift cam, so this is not original. The intake on the engine is from a 65-66 L36 cast iron high rise with rebuild QJet. No exhaust manifolds. Distributor is HEI w/tach drive. It is in my running, driving 68 Vette.

Block: casting # 3963512 Date Code B 4 71
Engine ID = TO2I7 CPH
Vin C115110827.

Heads are identical, casting 3993820, date B1671.

I will make a video of the engine running for any serious buyer. I welcome your inspection, and participation in the removal!

Price is $4,500.00 Or reasonable offer. Complete, turn key, ready to drop into your car and drive. No warranty, please verify everything I say is correct by inspecting or asking questions.

I am located in Northern CT, about 100 miles N of NYC. Pickup is preferred, but I will strap it to a pallet, drain the oil, shrink wrap it, and ship it to you at your expense via Target Logistics. They will pick up at my home with a lift gate truck, and deliver the same to you.

If I could figure our how to post a photo, I would. Rest assured, it looks just like a big block engine.
Any questions, please ask. I'll email photos of you like.
