2003 N. Broadway
This engine (short block) came with a pick-up that I recently purchased and the story was that the original owner was a dealer and ordered the engine in 1945 when he ordered his 1946 Chevrolet pick-up. The short block is still in the what appears to be the original wooden crate The reason he did this was because rationing was going on at that time was that anything metal and/or parts for anything we're hard or impossible to get. This was because the war was still going on or just ending and the WWII rationing had not been lifted & no one knew how long that rationing would continue after the war.
I have to date January 28, 2017 not opened the crate to check condition of the short block ... That I can see through the slats on the crate at the engine Pistons, crank and block are complete. I have not tried to rub the surfaces to see if they were coated with the old shipping agent causaline (a protective coating put on metal parts to keep them from rusting during shipping).
Pictures are available now via my phone and we will have pictures with this ad early next week.
Please feel free to call seven days a week up until 11 PM---My cell # is 620-249-7977--Tommy
