I have in my possession of an engine block number 639955.
Except for the head being pulled off. It does not look like anything has been done.
Is this worth anything? If so about how much?
Is there anything I should do to preserve the block?
It may have been in a 1911 car, but it's a 1915 engine, based on the serial number. Still has value.
Fat fingers strike again.
I mint '15.
It still has the 2 piece valves in it.
IMO every Model T engine with a serial number has the potential to become a car. I would guess $100-200 just for the s#. Preserve? If you are not going to sell it or do something right now, I would coat the thing with oil, put it in a bag and then into a Rubbermaid sealed tub.
I like that idea.
Now it looks like the beginning of a speedster.
