    GREAT color combo on the Bee...
    Of course I'm biased....
    As much as I love the 426 Hemi, and undoubtedly-absolutely would have one, because my 70 Roadrunner is a real V-Code car (not # matching motor) I will ALWAYS have a RB motor in it with 3 x 2 of something on top, so I am spared the temptation of the Hemi.
    20k without a doubt.

      I've been scoping the market as I'm fixing to sell my Hemi.
      20K all day long for yours and probably more.

        *DROOOOOOL*

        "Hey Ed, which are you drooling over - the hemi or the Bee?"

        Hey, I thought stock street hemi's routinely dyno'ed at around 500hp?

          Hi,
          Did you pick the 70 G0-Mango SE/RT from a guy in Ohio?
          I had a car just like that back in 84, Dayton OH
          Sold it to put down payment on a house
          Killer Combo/Killer Looks!

          All good input, as you all have mentioned:
          Variables
          Some may pay more...for the date code and originality of the engine, Cylinder Bore etc.
          I'm trying to Down Size, getting older...possibly selling a few items/cars
          Thanks TEAM for the Guidance...

            Hey ski, I bought the car out of South Carolina, and some friends in North Carolina owned it before that. I was told the car was originally from PA, so it may have migrated through Ohio. RT/SE, 383, 4-spd, non-console car, & Go-Mango ?

              :rofl:Yeah they like to under-rate them by showing the HP at silly low rpms like 5000...nothing makes power above 5K like a hemi!

                I watched an episode of Nick's Garage on YT recently. If you're aware of Nick, he's a lifelong Mopar kind of guy and he knows how
                to build an engine. They had a customers' hemi on the dyno after a rebuild; it was redone stock as possible.
                Once tuned, the engine laid down a touch over 500hp using a single Holley; Nick put the twin 4's on it afterwards and dialed them in.
                He said something to the effect of "these factory hemi's were good for 500hp stock all day", which is what I've always heard about them as well.

                  Imo.

                  I think it depends on the buyers market.
                  I've been quoted to build mine is mid teens. ( basically all stock street hemi ) upper teens to go stroker

                  Ive seen brand new engines in mid 20s.

                  The hot rod stuff will hold it back. So im thinking high teens / 20...maybe low/mid 20s if your lucky.
                  But a stock buyer will probably keep looking

                  But ive been Wrong before.
                  So what.do i know

                  Who’s quoting you that low? You must be supplying a sizable portion of parts?

                  I think the right price is $20,000-$25,000 for your motor. See the two Hemmings ads for Hemi engines I have uploaded. Good luck with the sale.
