    How much are you asking for your 259 ? I am in need of one for my 58 Commander.
    $2000.00 and you can not build one for that price......

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

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.

    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.

    $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.
