I had a friend just sell a really nice little 65 Falcon Convertible. It was a factory 289/4spd car. He did the revamp on the 289 2 barrel motor to a 289HiPro with parts I sold him, C50E-A heads, C50E-9425 intake without the emissions hole in the back and the 3/8" bolt rods.
I used to have a ton of HiPro stuff...........but with the prices on it so high..............I sold most of it because I was't going to build a 289 again.
If it were me I'd update the motor, paint it Ford Blue and make it reliable with aftermarket heads and roller hydraulics with a cam similar to the original HiPro and maybe a Cobra alminum intake..........................IMHO
