409 chevy

Hey -- When I was in High School, chevy 409 was IT. Now one never hears about the 409s anymore. I know--things change. But it'd be fun to have one of them for my rat project. oldrodder43

I had a 63 2-4 bbl engine I was going to put in a 57. Finally sold it. They were just too expensive to justify the build. So you can find them. I would guess more people give up on them than actually build them. They were definitely unique. And when you consider the design, you realize the concept was quite good. Big bore - short stroke - unshrouded valves. It was the execution that lacked a little.

Check here for parts and probably leads on how to get one.

Mostly for Resto work

Most of these engines find their way to restored cars of the era. Had a 425 hp in a 63 Impala when I was a kid really didn't know what I had, paid $1000 for the car with a 4 speed and posi. It was fast but always needed something done to get it ready for the weekend.

A TRI-FIVE is not complete without either a 327 or 409...

MY EYES! MY EYES! I'M BLIND!

It hurt me greatly that I did that to myself (remembering the old days)...

I have since gargled with lye and have used sulfuric acid on my fingertips. I watched three hours of THE THREE STOOGES to get the image(s) out of my mind...

Three Hail Marys and a fifth of JACK and I feel clean once again...

(I even had to change my shorts... )

..hmm...

Let's see...

There was that one group from THE SHAKY SIDE...

The BEACH BOYS? Was that it?

SPRING LITTLE COBRA I believe it went. You remember the COBRA? It made MINCEMEAT out of CHEVROLET'S TUPPERWARE offering?

As for WACKO JACKO... (another)

He was too busy to sing at this time as he lost his white glove (imagine wearing a single sparkling white glove to the tune of BEAT IT!) and it was finally found in BOY GEORGES' PANTIES...

Good to hear Cuz, lets chain them both between a 409 and a 406. Last one to the pub buys the first round.

Good Information Source!

FORD issued a similiar engine design, the MEL Series. Plank head design.

409, still available

How many you want, there's 2 or 3 on www.racingjunk.com right now. there's a 409 @ i think $3500.00 and a 348 at $1200.00 and another at $4500.00.
I can remember back in the early sixty's my friend had a showroom stock biscane heater delete,back seat delete, and radio delete. It ran low 12's with cheater slicks and the only change was a 4.56 gear.
