Offers are invited for a complete 1500GT (pre-crossflow) engine, which was rebuilt in 2004 for use in my Ford 100e, but a change of plan meant that although it was run for around half an hour, it was never driven. Since then, it has been dry stored, and I have recently removed the head for examination.
