I have the following engines left over from my '99 season in Iowa. Since I've moved down South I'm too busy to race, so I guess I'll sell these engines. I realize the prices are high, but most of you guys know my engines make good horse power.
The descriptions of the following engines are:

Eleven nights on a 40 night motor, qualified and raced in USMTS $10,000 to win show at Webster City last October. Price $7,500 with tank and lines.

Engine #2: 406, 817 Block, fully machined, TRW pistons, Lunati rods, Lunati roller, Barnes dry sump, splayed caps, 205 x 1.625 Dart heads and Super Victor intake ported by Rocket, comp rockers and girdles, engine is complete with aluminum valve covers, water pump, tank and lines. Never fired since

Engine has 2 nights on it since last rebuild. The smallest horse power modified engine I have making 615 horse power. Price: $4,700.

Engine #4: 363, 010 block with Chevy 4 bolt caps, Ross pistons, Wheeler 6"

Engine has 20 nights on it and should be rerung. $2,500 as is or $3,000 rebuilt.

Engine #6: 421, short block, fully machined 817 block with 3.850 inch crank, 6" LT6 rods fully prepared, floated pins, KB pistons. Price $2,100. Can furnish cam and oil system components at extra cost.

Engine #7: 408, 817 block with standard/standard Chevy crank shaft, X-rods fully prepared with floated pins and ARP bolts, KB flat tops and Moly rings, can furnish cam and oil system components at extra charge. Short block $1,600.

Note: All the above engines have no sleeves, are all decked to 9" with the exception of the 421 which is 8.970. All blocks have been plateau honed with deck plates and align bores checked or redone as necessary. Any one of these Modified engines is capable of winning a USMTS race. I can crate and ship any engine, any place in the continental US, guarantee the engine as far as whatís in it, and the condition. Also these prices would be negotiable to some extent. ie package deals. Thank you, and let me know. P.S. I also have a lot of new internal engine parts such as pistons, timing sets, some cams, new and used, and 9" Ford gears and third members.
