Hi, I've been searching all over the internet and it looks like you guys are the early ford experts. Hope you don't mind if I but in and ask a couple of questions. I've aquired a 1964 289 5 bolt engine and automatic bellhousing. I was told they were from a Fairlaine. Turns out I don't need them and I'm trying to find out if this block and bellhousing combination is rare or just different. Are there people that would want this combination? Any help would be appreciated.

They may be of some value to someone restoring an older Ford {pre-'65}. As performance parts they have no value. I read Ford went to the 6 bolt bellhousing in '65 to cut down on engine vibration.

You might consider running it on E-Bay...

I would think they'd be most valuable to the Tiger crowd. Those cars are 260's usually and they need the 5 bolt block to be able to keep the original tranny.

I'm not sure how rare the 5 bolt is but if you need one where else are you going to find one? Guess what? I'm looking for one. Is it complete?
