    You probably already know about it, but http://ford-mel-engine.com/ has a for sale section.

    Unless you want to buy a '64 convertible project? ;)

    would a salvage one be less$?

    A 430 that doesn't need valves, crank, or pistons costs 3500-4000 to rebuild. One in need of all moving parts can easily and quickly double that.

    I can't imagine that a good runner would cost more than a full rebuild on a salvage engine.

    Hey Litterfisher, I have some Lincoln 430 parts for Sale, including a complete starboard motor, condition unknown. Ran well 7 years ago.

    Very reasonably priced, I'd rather see them used, then sit. P.M. if interested.
