Congrats on a good buy on the motor. It's worth at least $50, if the block is in one piece, as a core motor for trade.

Don't believe the grabber motor was anything special. Grabber was a paint color actually.

Welcome to M&M. Good site with good advice. Someone more into the Grabber side should be along shortly.

The engine in a Grabber is no different than any other. Good deal for the $ though. Most people don't realize that the "Grabber" was basically a graphics package. Some had a hood with scoops and most Grabbers built were 6cyl. cars.

thanks darrel

yes getting it for 50 bucks stil amazes me, but my neighbor who got it for me is a good guy, and glad to help in getting it for me, and you know i got 2 falcon 1964 extra doors in the buying of the car, so whatever i dont use, i may see for real cheap, maybeeee i can do that for someone else who needs doors, and they can be happy with a good deal they got from me, the whole karma thing i think is working here, since i bought the car nothing but good things have come from it!!!!!and its cool that is a normal 302, we are gonna build it up as well to a high performance engine, i cant wait!!!!
