Hi, Thanks in advance for any help making my decision. The motor is a 74 block with 73K heads ( that I do not really want to keep) not sure what is inside yet. It was frozen when I got it. I was able to mystery oil it and get it to turn by hand but I'm not going to try to fire it up just going to rebuild. My machine shop is at 2500.00 for complete rebuild and break-in and tune. Should I spend the time and money to find a date correct 400 or stay with what I have?   I am looking to sale the car when completed . After I enjoy it for 6mths to a year just local shows and some cruises. Thank you, Don   :-\

If its not the right moor, then it doesnt matter much as long as its a 400

Thanks for the input. That was my general  thinking also.
