Ford 1600 GT Engine

Still at stock bore!, original pistons and rings; “681” version block.
Stock 6 bolt crank and bearings.
It has as the early recessed type head cavities.
Head done with bronze guide sleeves, valves and seats touched and head lightly resurfaced, it didn’t need much.
Dave Bean new unused “fast road” cam installed.
Upgraded valve springs for the higher lift.
Oil pan good, undamaged.
New water pump.
Flywheel is clean.
Lotus style clutch pressure plate.
Unused manifold for side draft Webers as shown.
The engine has not been run since work done as evidenced by the machine shops blue paint still visible in the exhaust ports. (I pained the head grey). The blue paint on the block is original. Rocker cover still has the original (cockeyed :) ) 1600GT sticker, I masked it when I painted the cover black.
I have original stock cam, and also a Lotus (four slot) cam if one wanted to convert to a tall block twink.
I am in Orillia Ont., pick up preferred or maybe arrange something, but I do not own a truck. Not inclined to ship as likely too expensive and time consuming to crate.
Oil pan alone is worth several hundred as is the cam.
Open to reasonable offers.

The engine in my 7 is similar spec. and I really don’t need a spare.
