Ground Hemi



It's not every day that you go to an auction and see a Chrysler hemi engine sitting on the ground. The story is that it was sitting on a pulling tractor for years, then it ended up sitting in the dirt for more years and they moved it up the hill and put it in a line up for the auction.

I'd be curious to see what it sold for. In that condition 99.9% chance its stuck its really a crap shoot whether the block will be a decent core. Also would depend on what it is... 331/354/392.

It sold for $100. It's supposed to be a 1955 331.

I did like the transmission cooler bolted to the water pump so all the water coming from the lower radiator hose ran through it.

Very nice! Yours looks a lot better than the one I watched sell. I wonder what the guy that bought it was planning to do with it, I didn't think to ask him.

Mine looked almost that bad when I bought it. Was sitting under a tarp on a guys back porch for a few years. Original solid lifter Chrysler 300-C 331 with dual quads (300 factory hp). If the one you saw had solid lifters, the adjustable rocker shafts alone would be worth about $400. Converted mine to hydraulic lifters and that's what I got for my adjustable rockers on e-bay when I sold them.
