I know this sounds silly but I've been crating up the Fulton 762 to send it on it's way to a new home back East and am actually feeling like I'm saying goodbye to an old friend. I've never felt any kind of attachment to any car part before in my 50 years in this hobby. This has been a great engine and brought us many happy moments. Anyway, it's all freshened up & ready to send out in the next few days to make room for the new one to show up.

tough to let go of something good ,,, i'd say that would still be a great engine in like a puller truck , or similar ,,, i like to look on racingjunk at engines for sale that are old ,, but most likely are still too much for most of us ,,,

It's a CFE sheetmetal intake with billet runners. They are CFM split Dominators. They actually saw a Holley Dominator in half and make two 2-barrels out of it. They are "split" & moved over the intake runners for better fuel distribution. There's a lot of "accessories" on there as well with 4 nitrous kits, blow-off panels, water injection, nitrous fuel regulators for each kit, etc.

The new owner is in New York and runs a Nova actually. :eek:

Mike,
Who you using to ship it?
Engine shipping.com worked out well for me- I had a motor shipped from another sns member last week.

That motor is a work of art!:yes:
It would be a main attraction at my house. :D

I shipped FEDX 2nd day air freight...

I try to keep my stuff pretty tidy. It still looks pretty good after 6 years of being taken apart and put back together who knows how many times. They are never together long enough to collect any dirt or grease. :D
