1964 430 out of a 1964 Lincoln Continental.

 

The motor was professionally rebuilt by a local machine shop and literally every single part was replaced.

 

All reasonable offers will be entertained.

 

The rebuild alone was over 5k so please don't think of low balling me.

 

The value of the motor is a little ambiguous but I think its somewhere around 10k.

 

Located in Colorado Springs. Buyer is responsible for shipping. I am happy to crate the motor for freight shipment.

I've always been somewhat confused about the 430 engines. Are they the same as the 352, 390 and 428s or are these a different breed all together?  What parts interchange?

The 430 and later the 460 were called M-E-L engines or Mercury, Edsel, Lincoln and that's where they used them - i.e., not in Ford products.  On the Ford side, they used the Ford FE series engine: 352, 390, 427, 428.  These are two different engine families with little component crossover.

 

When the Ford 385-series engines appeared in 1968 (429 and 460), both the MEL and FE engine lines were dropped and all Ford products (where applicable) used the Ford 385 family of engines,

10K for this seems way out of range, unless its a concours restoration engine.  Even then, it's not a Shelby or anything like that.
