    In my travels for work, I came across a fellow who has three dual quad 409 engines. His 63 Byscane project car didn't happen, so he has no more need for these engines. All are disassembled and clean, but complete.

    At $6,000 each, who wants one? Is that price in the ballpark?

    I might be interested. The big factor is how far have they already been bored? These engines will only go 60 over before sleeving and sleeves are very tricky. The heads are not 90 degrees to the bore, they are canted at 16 degrees making machine work more difficult. Sleeving requires someone who is experienced and has a wheel barrow to carry away the money it costs to have it done. Secondly are they passenger car engines or truck engines? This is not a major concern, but it is necessary to know. Third, what heads come with them? The 690's were the most desirable, but I have smaller ones on mine and they work fine. Ballpark price for these is all over the place. $6,000 sounds a little steep for an unassmbled engine, but I haven't bought one in a long time.

    I'll get more details next week, but all are car engines. I believe he said they are all 63.
