I pulled this motor out of a 55 mercury wagon, it was locked up but I took a chance anyway. After many dollars later, (I see why sbc are so popular) and what seemed like all summer it's finally together. Just put the valve covers on last night, got them from a fellow hamber (thanks Scott). I can't wait to get it running. Planning to put it in my 27 roadster. Anyway I thought it looked pretty cool and I had to show it off.
