Wanted - good 288/327 block

Well my project is on hold now due to a hole and crack in one of the cylinders. Not sure if repair is possible or reasonable cost-wise vs just buying another block & shipping.

Looking for a decent bare 288 or 327 5 bearing block, anyone have one going spare?

There have been a few for sale on this site.

This one has been on Craigslist, not sure if you want it all

Check with Max Merritt. They just bought all the engines out of the Packard museum, and I'm pretty sure there were some included.

This '53 Clipper club sedan might have a usable engine:

Or this '53 Clipper Deluxe that suffered an interior fire:
https://boise.craigslist.org/cto/d/nam ... 3-packard/7200645697.html
On this one, you might recover part of the price selling the chrome grille and other potmetal parts that are still good.

Check out the Classified Ads on my Packard / IMPERIAL page where there are several 327 engines listed.

We've got a '53 327" 4-bbl core engine we've been wanting to rebuild. Are you interested in a completely rebuilt engine?

I know this is old, but if you still need a 288, I'm pretty sure I have one. Shipping is going to suck, but I'd be happy to be rid of it for $100, if you pay shipping or arrange for it to disappear.

The bad news is it would be a residential liftgate pickup, because I don't have a vehicle yet that'll hold it. The good news is I have a pallet ready to go.

There's a guy in Amarillo who has a 327 (bearings count unknown) on a pallet at his house. If you'll go and pick it up, he'll let you have it gratis. I was going to but other options have made it unnecessary at this stage.

Contact me if you're interested.

I have several options too in both 5-main and 9-main configurations. See the Classified Ads or use the search at the upper right. Also a 359 will be coming soon.
