    looking for a 331 or 390 caddy engine

    last weekend we dismantled Tinos 331 caddy engine after he broke down on his way back from W.A.R.









    one valve teared off and had a big party in the cylinder!


    now Tino is looking for a new engine! a 1955 331 would be ok but he would prefer to upgrade to a 390 from 61 or 62
    , that should fit to his 4 speed atm!

    best would be something around austin texas where Brian lives or somewhere around raleigh North Carolina because we have containers coming to germany from there regularly!
    any help is appreciated!

    What are you looking for? Something to rebuild? Something in running condition? Something performance?

    complete or running is both ok (if there is any machinework to be done we would do that in the states , if its a running engine we would nevertheless take it apart) ... performance isn t needed ... tino wants more power than the original 331 had but the car shouldnŽt become a racer thats why he would prefer a 390

    if it costs 3500usd i think its at least 4000€ until it s here in germany! for money i wouldn t buy an engine from ebay where i donŽt really know what i get! for 4000€ we should maybe find one in Germany too!

    For that kind of money you would be close to being able to buy a good used engine and have it rebuilt, so it would be brand new when you get it. It would be stock but new, no performance.
