Running 288 and transmission - 1948

See User information
Complete running 288 engine and transmission. Block is a 1948.
Transmission is set up for am electromatic clutch with the governor and sensors.
I drove the car into the garage and just pulled it out. I have no need for a 288 as I am going back to a 282.
I can sell just the engine or transmission or as a package deal.
Package deal is $850 OBO
Only know issue is the water pump needs rebuilt but I think I have an extra I can throw in
Located west of Seattle WA.

Jerry; Good for you going back to the original 282. I would suggest you find an R-9 overdrive transmission, with the none overdrive differential it will perform like a modern car on the freeway. The only part that is difficult to find is the original overdrive cable that attaches to the steering column. The kick down switch and R-9 regulator take a little cash, but are available.

I already have the overdrive in the restored chassis and I have the correct cable and relay!
