Some of you may remember that when I moved from Las Vegas to Colorado the engine for my 64 Merc 2 dr Fast back got left( Supposed temporary) at my ex-wifes house and she sold the complete motor AND a custom made engine stand for scrap ---- most likely to buy beer! I have been searching for another 390 Super Marauder engine for the Merc. Today there was an ad on CL in Denver for a complete 64 4 dr Marauder Fastback at a reasonable figure . I was considering buying the whole car for the mill and parting the rest out . In talking with the owner ,I found he had a complete 390 super marauder engine , possibly a runner but for sure a good core as I had planned a rebuild of the one I had. His Asking Price ?---100.00 dollars!! I have never made a trip to Denver so fast ever before , and the engine was exactly as he said, complete to every part.Needless to say, I am a happy camper today!! On top of all the luck, the owner offered to bring the engine out to where I live ( 100 miles away) as he had to come out this way Saturday and I did not have my truck with me, but was planning to return next week to get after paying for it today. Some days the sun shines a little brighter , and we had horrible rain in Colorado today , but not on me!!
