My son wrecked his classic 66 some 20 years ago and the engine happens to be still in my garage. He sold the car which was damaged in the front to someone in Birmingham who married the front A pillar back to another front end. The engine was pulled and now sits in an engine stand. My assumption is the engine need a full rebuild as nothing has been done over this period of time. Before someone says it, I realize we should have better maintained the engine but it was tucked away and mostly forgotten. So what is something like this worth?

Thanks.

Thanks, I did see a resale site where they were offered for about $300. I’ll check with the local mustang club too.

I don't remember if they did it in 66 but look behind the intake, there is a flat machined pad facing up on the passenger (right) side, they stamped the last 6 or 7 of the vin numbers there.
I don't remember when they started this.
Other than that the date code on the engine will predate the build date of the body.
The more experienced here can verify this (or say I'm full of it) it's been a long time.
