392 Hemi

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Tony Hine, Nov 19, 2012.

  1. Anyone have an idea what a 1957, 392 Hemi is worth? The engine is in a chrysler Imperial, is complete, was running when parked,is not locked up, has not been run in at least 3 years, radiator and engine full of antifreeze.

    Whilr Dr. Racecar is funny a good solid running 392 should fetch at least $1,000.00 and up to $2,000 easily if it's really nice in stock form. A good core can bring $1k to the right folks. Depending on what options it has on it. Check the numbers first though as a 331/354 has been swapped in there before and they are worth less. If it's got an A1 on it then it's worth more as well.
     
  4. 331-354 are worth less but far from worthless :D

    Go on Hothemiheads.com , and go to swap meet site you can find out what people are asking for any type of hemi. w
     
  8. I haven't priced them recently but I would agree with 73RR here a complete running 392 is probably worth about 2K unless it is a knocking and smoking running 392 in which case it is just a core.

    Typically a non running core goes for 2K-2,500. A running 392 with good Comp & not smoking would go for more.

    I paid $1,800.00 for a running 392 out of an Imperial four years ago. The Imperial valve covers if in decent shape can bring as much as $250 on EBAY.

    A lot depends on the region your in. Out West & up North brings more than down South. Should be worth over $1000 though.

    True, but they are 1958 only.

    Kinda depends on what you mean when you say the "engine" is full of antifreeze:D

    After seeing the prices of a 392 the last several years, I'm really glad I bought mine when I did. A total of $600 invested in two complete engines, one 57 and one 58, plus an iron torqueflite. The 58 was a running engine, 57 was flooded with diesel fuel when stored, so came apart very clean.
