What is the value of a 1959 392 Hemi as a core to rebuild?

Post by sweetchariots » Mon Apr 09, 2007 4:55 pm

I have a friend with a 1959 pickup truck with an original 392 Hemi. It did run, but spun a bearing and rod cap due to a hydrolock issue/headgasket I think...

The crank is still good, all internals are ok... He wants to sell the engine rather than junk it & wants to know the value...

Any help would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Peter from www.SweetChariots.com

As the 392 was never used in a truck application, we would need the engine numbers located in front of the center valley cover to properly identify your engine.

392 Hemi Engine #'s for determining Value...

I was told by the owner that it says "1175" on the top behind the water pump. I have not seen the engine. I told him to pull a valve cover off to see a # on the head for comfirmation. Is "1175" a real hemi block #?
