I was visiting my favorite wrecking yard today and they sold and are crushing every thing. I know the previous owner and he let me search thru what is left. He still is working there. I found a 429 in a 69 Ford wagon, it has C9VE heads, uknown condition. Complete motor for $100. Also found a 71 429 in a truck, supposed to be a runner, has D0VE heads - $300 complete motor. Are these good prices? I feel like I have to save them from the crusher. The 71 even has a E brock carb on it. I dont want to be just impulse buying this stuff to save it from the crusher. Is it worth it?

yeah I would. Im sitting on 2 351w's that I found for cheap. some day I'll find a use for them, or sell them to someone that wants them. either way I think it was a good score.

You can NEVER have to many motors. If you got the cash, and the room, buy them. You never know when the right project for them will come up!
