    Looking for some poncho help from members. I am looking for an engine block for a 1969 Pontiac Custom S convertible. Trying to make the car more correct and get rid of the 72 catalina 350 thats in it now. The motor the car wouldve come with i believe was a high output 350 2bbl. But i am looking for the block from another 69 custom s, with the matching crank and heads so it can be rebuilt. Any help trying locate a somewhat rare block would be greatly appreciated

    This breaks my heart. I have a '69 Custom S 4-door hardtop that I'm using for a parts car and it had a 350-2 backed by a TH400 (I was shocked that it came with a Th400). Anyway, I couldn't find anyone interested in the engine so I used the oil pan and valley pan and the rest of the engine was discarded. I knew I should have kept it. Sorry.

    Its all good! Im thrilled that someone else has one on the board! Every year at the pontiac nationals out of 1,000+ cars we have been the only custom s convertible on the grounds. Only one year was there a hardtop, but thats been it
