There is a elderly couple who come in to my store everyday who has been telling me I need to come by there house and check out the old motors he has. They are 1954 ford y blocks. I don't get to excited over y blocks but decided I should swing and check them out they are a really nice couple. When I got there he had a rebuilt 239 on an engine stand complete carb to pan. He also had a rebuilt transmission in the cabinet. Cool but not to exciting right. Well on the floor was a create with another 239. The story on that one is that in 1961 there was a ford dealership in Springfield that was going out of business and was purchased from them. This motor has been sitting in the create for 53 years. The plan was to put one of the two in his uncles 54 ford. The car was sitting next to his uncles gas station before some punk kids torched it. He told me he wants them gone and can have it all. Is there a chance the create motor is a brand new engine or a remanufactured one? He has the paper work on it but didn't look at it.
