    Hey Mike.

    Would you happen to know what year the motor is?

    Is it possible to get some casting number info?

    Thanks.

    I've got a complete, running '71 455 up in NE Wyoming, probably about 3oo miles from you.

    Thank you Mike. I will let you know.

    I assume they are in rebuildable shape?

    Looking for the best year to rebuild.

    Would be leaning towards the '73.

    Hi Kyle,

    I'm in the Des Moines, Iowa area. If you don't end up taking the other offers, trying to respectively get in line, I have a 71 455, had it for 20+ years in my shop. Turns over free, came out of a running car. It's a TR coded block. Complete less carb and maybe rockers but I have many carbs to pick from, maybe even a 71. And a set of stamp steel 72 rockers.

    Just looking to thin down on all the stuff. I've been saving it for a project but there's too darn many..... I was saving it with my 87 GN 200 trans. Would be a nice cruising combo....

    Kyle, are you selling your 350? If so, what condition is it in? Will it come with all of the brackets?

    Von, it's a very good possibility.

    Still in car. High mileage but still runs good. Will need a rebuild though.
