    $1200.00 sounds very optimistic for an unknown engine that has low oil pressure. Not many people will want a core 259 for that money.

      I agree, $1200 is way too high. I bought a good running full flow 289 with good oil pressure for 1/4 of the price of this 259.

        Agree, a '56 259" and tranny is a $200-300 bill, not $1200. Figuring running is better than a typical junkyard core, maybe $350, tops.

          You found a good deal, but as already figured out this 56 259 with low oil pressure and in need of rebuild would be at best a $400.00 and I say at best. I would love to get $400.00 got rebuild able non full flow 259, most are stripped out and block and crank scrapped. I have a rebuilt and balanced non full flow 259 in the shop right now for sale.

            How much are you asking for your 259 ? I am in need of one for my 58 Commander.

              Too much. I bought a good running 259 full flow motor for $500 less than 5 years ago.

                $2000.00 and you can not build one for that price......
