Guy on eBay is parting a '59 Lark. He's listed the 259 block (with crank and cam still in) and the Flight-O-Matic (minus converter and flex plate), both starting bids of .99 ($20 to palletize and ship). Here are the listings:

I once sent a '51 Champ truck engine & OD transmission from VA to UT, so I know what it would cost to bring that back!

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm in Denver, and the parts car would eb great for my '60 hardtop.
