322 w/ four barrel carb $500

Recommended Posts

Never seen a 322 with a filler neck and caps on the valve covers... $500 is kinda steep, especially for a stuck piston. Even though it's complete, I would say it's probably only worth $200-300 (that's what I paid for my cores).

I no relatively nothing about these early nailhead engines, but isn't that four barrel intake worth a few pennies by itself?

Ed,

Do you know which Springfield this is from? Missouri, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado? There's a bunch of Springfields.

I know in the straight eights, the standard shift crankshafts are different from the Dynaflow crankshafts. Seller says this is from a standard shift '55 Century. Those are rare as hen's teeth. Does someone know if the crankshafts in the V-8s are unique to the standard shift cars? If so, this engine will be well worth the asking price.

I know you can buy an adapter to use a dynaflow crank with a 3spd trans....

There were two versions of the 322 in 1955; one with the filler neck coming out of the pushrod cover, the other with oil filler caps on the valve covers.

417 is a southern Missouri area code.  I did a Google search of the phone number and it's a business right in Springfield.  About a 6 hour drive for you, Pete.
