Default Re: Relieved Ford V8 block

It's been a while but I was fortunate to purchase 2 new 59L relieved blocks still covered in cosmoline in factory crates. I always thought since we had 2 military bases in the area they were surplus? I built the first one with a 4 inch crank, mild cam, Chevy valves, Egge pistons, Offenhauser heads and 2 94's and put it in a 32 Ford roadster and it was a good running street motor. The second one I did about the same but with a Road Runner blower and man did that light that engine up. Installed it in another 32 roadster with a 5 speed and it was a rocket. I'll probably never find another new block like these.
