I have had a bunch of emails on these 2 blocks so here are the facts

DOVE-A block 2 bolt main machined main web standard bore 429 crank,rods and pistons block has been greased up since late 70s
I had a guy here yesterday and we wiped the grease from one cylinder and could still see the cross hatch and could feel no ridge in the cylinder
and we pulled a lifter out with no problem was not varnished up at all
comes with timeing cover,water pump,front sump oil pan and pulleys

C9VE block havent pulled pan standard bore 429 crank,rods,pistons
has had water in cylinders from sitting should clean up with 030 over bore
comes with front sump oil pan,timing cover,water pump,pulleys and point dist

I will take 400 for both or 350 for the Dove and 150 for the C9VE
or will take FE parts in trade intakes or heads
I also have a spare 427 Tunnel Port single plane single 4 intake for sale
looking for a dual quad single plane intake for a 427 tunnel port
email me let me know if interested
