Exactly what car are you working with? A little more info would be helpful.

I would say your local junkyard...might require a rebuild, and some work...but overall you'd save some money, actually that's the only place that I can think of where you could get that engine...excepts maybe in the classifieds...

if you live in wv you shouldnt have a problem. start driving around and lookin on the back roads, see an old ltd, cougar, lincoln....stop and ask about it. alot of people will practically give you the car and most of them still run and drive...trust me im an expert at getting junk cars off peoples property....

Oh, I love the Comets/Mavericks of that vintage. My buddy has a '72 Maverick Grabber. You can strip down an '87-'93 Stang and use the trans/engine...you can even run the wiring and run fuel injection if you so desire.
