Default 1968 chevy 396 big block, factory 300 plus horsepower, all original complete

1968 chevy 396cid big block. all original and complete. under 100k orig. i believe it was factory 350 horsepower (may not be exact, but close, might of been 360hp,340hp.etc). factory high rise intake. this was originally a car engine, this is not a truck engine. oval port heads, not the crappy peanut ports of the 70s and 80s. motor ran when pulled and appears to be in really really nice condition. never rebuilt. rolls over nice, no funny noises etc.. etc.. will run as is or rebuild it and have a really nice bbc. why buy a 70s or 80s big block with crappy heads, 8 to 1 comp., and emmisions, this is from the peak of performance "era" if you will. would not be selling but i just pulled my small block apart and found more issues than i was aware of, and need to finance a new short block. i would trade this for the right small block. i really only need a short block. must be nice, im not giving away a '68 bbc for a stock smog era small block. would really like a nice short block. anyhow pm or reply with offers. or ill start the price out at $900. i have seen smog era big blocks go for $900 PLUS, im thinking this wont last long. also, i should mention if i find and aquire a good small block short block before this sells ill be taking it down. thanks for looking.

motor is original, never been apart, and in good condition. dont want to part it out. you could do even a stock rebuild (or run as is) and have an honest reliable 350 hp and big block torque. the heads were the better oval port castings. i can get the numbers after work tonight and ill pm them to ya if your interested
