Every few months those 455s turn up at the local salvage yard, they sell there for $150, complete.

Re: What is a complete 455 rocket worth

They really aren't anything special, they're not competitive, dollar-for-dollar, with a big block Chevy, and unless you buy everything Mondello makes, they have no potential. The Chevy LQ4 makes half again the power and 90% of the torque, with only a cam swap, while being emissions clean and getting quadruple the gas mileage, for far less money than even a mild rebuild on a 455. Face reality, leave the old stuff where it belongs, in the past.

Re: What is a complete 455 rocket worth

And why I posted said link, to the right people it could be a pile of gold.
As orginal and old is what they want. Even more to the guy trying to find his long lost orignal engine to make it a $100,000 numbers matching car.
