I was planning this 400 build for my 55 Pontiac Chieftain and thought I had the motor locked down. I had been talking to a partner from way back about this Poncho motor he bought from a bone yard I was workin at about 15 years ago. Turned out dude still had it and didnt have any plans for it. I told him I wanted the motor and would come pick it up shortly, this was about 2 months ago, I waited too long! Dude had the motor and tranny sitting in the back of a 65 F-100 in the back of his property and finally decided it was time to get rid of all the "shit" laying around the place. Truck, engine, and tranny all went to the scrapper for the price of steel. Didn't even bother to call a dude before he drove 4 hours to come get it! I would have took all three and paid better than the crusher. Bummer. So now Im on the hunt for another 400 at a white boy price. Preferably the 9790071 or 481988 cast# blocks, complete, running, hooked to a 4-speed, Im open to whatever. Throw me a bone, if Im hungry enough, I will bite.
