It came in a crate that my Dad and I loaded in our truck right out of Mickey's shop in Long Beach. It is one of the engines Ford gave to Mickey for his Boneville time runs. The engine was payment for my Dad doing all the plumbing for the shop 'Dyno' set-up. We put it in a ski boat where it got about 200 hours work. We pulled and refreshed it in 1972 and it sat in the garage untill my Dad passed. In 2003 I put it in a Mandella and it got another 100 hours or so (2-3 weekends a year). I pulled and refreshed it again but it is just too much motor for how I use it, so it is for sale. Just to be clear, this motor has seen ONLY fresh water - It is now located in Parker, AZ.
