I need a 428 to replace the one that just blew up in my '66 Galaxie 7 Litre. A rod (or more) poked through the block on the highway over the weekend.
Hoping to find one with casting number and date code that would be appropriate/authentic to this car, so I need a C6ME-A made before Feb 4 1966 (the car's build date). My engine is dated 6A12.
Will consider complete engines (used or rebuilt), bare blocks, shortblocks, etc as I am mostly looking for one in good shape with the =right codes=. If there is a bore-able 390/410 out there I would consider that too. Goal is something that at least looks factory/stock on the outside - so I don't need aluminum heads, performance intakes, etc.
Any leads would be appreciated.
This is the engine I unfortunately have to replace:
