    if its a K code 289 HIPO engine, it adds about 30% value to a classic mustang when they are 'appraised' - if its a numbers matching engine.

    Doesn't add that much value to a Bronco though, unless you pull it and sell it to a Mustang guy. Most people who claim to have a 289 hypo motor don't, IMO...

    you are really going to have to check the numbers. a 289 hipo in a bronco is kind of strange. I wouldnt be surprised if it was a 302 HO.

    Well of course he did not call me last night :bang: . But, I'm going to track this guy down and try to buy this thing. And yes the motor would be pulled out to sell to someone needing this for their resto. All I have been told was it has a 289 HIPO out of a 65' mustang. Can't comfirm anything though, but I will track this guy down thats for sure. :spot:

    Yeah, it seems like every 289 out of a '65 is a hipo. They ought to start calling them hypos, as in hypothetically its a hipo.
