302w Virgin Block needed

I know this may be a big call, but does anyone have a 302w virgin unbored with no lip in the bores available for sale?

I am in Sydney area, but will pay for post if a good block is found.

Thanks fellas

Re: 302w Virgin Block needed

Over $2k for Sportsman...Just get a good used late 70's block with no more than .030 over bore..It's not the bore that crack anyway....Ballance it to 27 once or better still zero ballance...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
