I have a d1ve block that i just bought to build up, but i just got an offer for a 460 plus the c-6 out of a 69 lincoln for my 5.0 stock set up out of my swap car, i dont know what block it is and if it would be worth it to get that and not build up my own he says it only has 80,000 miles on it, im waiting back for more info but just figured i would ask if anyone new anything about the motor from that year linconl and if it would be worth
I think that it would help if its running b/c then all i have to do is buy the swap parts get it in and running and work out all the bugs and then build up a nice motor from there especially since this is my first 460 build.

thanks
Paul

Assuming the engine is original 80K and not rebuilt/has always been in the car, the block is most likely a C9VE-B block. That's a fine cylinder block as is most all 460 passenger car blocks.

Assuming the same, the C9VE-A heads are essentially the best mass produced factory iron passenger car heads out there (C8VE, C9VE and D0VE).

Also do you even know what the current boresize is of your D1VE block? Again, perhaps the C9VE block is still standard bore.

my d1ve block is std bore but i would have to have it bore 30 over due to rust on the cylinder walls, thanks for the info i didnt know the c9ve heads flowed as well as the dove ones.

thanks
