283 1961 small block chevy
.Thought the engine was seized.It just needed a cheater bar and ratchet to break it loose. It had been sitting many years.It came out of a 1961 LCF wrecker.519 block 2 barrel. I took the intake and 3774692 heads off. It looks like it may just be runable as is or have it welded.It's not a Flint block it's a Tonawanda. So the block is not corvette.It's wrecker.Still a tough little motor that came with a very big flywheel and power pack heads. Head dates are B 15 61 and D 6 61.
