Hey guys. I was able to come across these heads from the stash of a longtime 60s Ford racer who lives in my neighborhood. Id love to get any opinions from you guys as to what you might know about these.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Need help identifying a 289 block.

Hey everyone. I came across an 289 engine that has an interesting VIN / casting sequence. I need any help I can get to see if its worth purchasing.

The block cast number is C6AE-6015-C, but the VIN stamped into it is 8K222264.
Does the K make it a Hi-Po?

I came across these while cleaning out my Uncles attic and wanted to share with the group. The last pic is of some clear stickers and a stub from a race at MIS in 68’

I’ve already posted them on the GT 40 forum for the guys over there.

Looking for an early 1967 GT-350 Flat style tail panel.

Hello all.
I recently located and purchased a 1967 GT350 which was modified into a B/FX straight front axle drag racer sometime around late 1968 or early 1969. I'm currently looking for any history that I can find on the car.

Supposedly the car was parked in 69 or 70 and has been sitting since. The original color is White  and the car had blue stripes. The car shows traces of a cheap silver repaint at some point and was stripped of most of its Shelby parts. After that someone painted the car flat black with a paint brush. I've been slowly wiping the painted layers away with lacquer thinner to reveal the original white paint with blue stripes and acquiring a few OEM replacement parts for the body.

The modifications to the car were extreme as you can see in the pictures. The original engine, front apron, clip and doors are gone and replaced with a square tube frame and fiberglass components, thus leaving the car with no visible VIN to help identify itself...Unfortunately the previous owner was a hoarder of sorts and had passed away by the time I found the car so the history is non-existent at this point. I've located many of the body sheet metal stamp dates which are all seem to fall in mid Feb/67.

If there is anyone from the Chicago area who has any information or remembers seeing a straight axle Shelby racing at the old US030 dragway, please get ahold of me or post here.

I'll attach a couple pictures of the car to this post.
