A few years back when I still had my 61 wagon, a fellow business acquaintance told me he had this 409 motor he's had since the early 70's. He asked if I wanted it and I told him yea maybe...I figured it was bullshit as he has the art perfected. The story I got was the guy that gave him this motor pulled it from a 64 SS and installed a 283 because his wife was scared to drive the car and this was also around the time of the fuel crunch...sounded like a b.s. story to me. Well years later he brings this story back up and I call him on it, "I got it out there in the shed full of shit.. go check it out". So after beating the hell out of the door to get it open and jumping over piles of old tires,broken mowers,dried up paint cans and rat shit I find it..I'm thinking HOLY SHIT I CANT BELIEVE THIS!!!! Its pretty much complete, It appears to have the wrong front carb and is missing the manifolds$$. I don't know what action I'm going to take here as I don't have a project for it, I was thinking of sticking it in the 37 but I like my little blown mouse, then I thought about giving it to dad for his 64 Vette or maybe selling it...who knows. It goes to show you that sometimes their not bullshitting!
