    Used / Wrecking Yard Item - 2-5 Business Days (May delay order)

    Long block, factory C code 289-2V V-8 engine. Rated at 195 Hp with 8.7:1 compression ratio in 1968. Likely 0.030" bored motor that may or may not have been in running condition when pulled. Guaranteed to be rebuildable. Complete engine less carburetor, exhaust manifolds, fan, distributor, accessories, pulleys, and flex plate. Intake manifold and oil pan are included but oil pan will be in poor condition. We would be happy to match your build date. Most of our engines originally came with an automatic transmission, in some cases these blocks will not have the tapped hole for the manual transmission Z-bar bracket. Carburetors, distributors, fans, accessories, and pulleys are available separately. Many different combinations of pulleys and brackets depend upon things such as air conditioning and power steering.

    Motors ship via www.forwardair.com so be sure and check their locations as you will be picking up at their terminal.

    *Trivia* Many have assumed incorrectly that whenever a 289 appears in a 1968 Cougar that it was a "leftover" from 1967. Actually the 289 was not available in early 1968 but was introduced later in the year to compete with other lower priced makes. These motors are stamped "1968" and were only available in 2V form and always were offered in conjunction with standard interiors.
