How many cans of cast blast do you think the seller used spraying it up?  Hysterical

Interesting VIN stamp.  Some gnarly piston skirt damage.

I've had blocks come up looking that clean from the machine shop, no paint.

Am I correct in saying the hipo block is the same as a regular block, sans a crank cap?

The block, minus caps, is the same block as a LoPo 289.  However, a VIN stamping with the "K" legitimizes the block with some pedigree, assuming it is an original stamping.  And if the block has a GT350 VIN, even more pedigree.  I am not sure what VIN is stamped on this block.  That VIN does not have the same level of pedigree as a 6R09KXXXXXX or 5R09KYYYYYY.  If the block was mine, I may have found a nicely dated coded 289 block and swapped the HiPo caps onto it.  Then the damage skirt is not an issue.

VIN asterisks? 

This might be a rare 'one-of-one' for only 3k.

Hmm... I thought 65 Fairlanes were made at the Lorain plant (?).

I had a 64 271HP Sport Coupe but it has been years.....

Aloha, I had a '64 HiPo Fairlane 500, but I don't remember an asterisk in the stamping. That engine ended up getting sold to a friend of mine who put it in a Mustang that went to Australia, as far as I know. My '65 HiPo Sports Coupe didn't have an original engine, so I can't say. Certainly none of my later performance engines, like Boss 302s or 428CJs have had the asterisks in the stampings, although I seem to remember seeing it on some transmission case stampings. Interesting! Aloha, Robert
