Hey Fellas,

460 shortblock complete (used in boat)
460 heads complete

What do you guys think? Decent? Too much? Profitable?

Thanks in advance.

According to my VERY limited experience valuing 429 stuff, the value of the heads is in the casting numbers. Look for C9VE, D0VE and I think a couple of years either side of that. Heads go for $100 a piece on e-bay, good blocks for $400. 460s are maybe the same deal?
