Source for a decent Chevy 396 engine?

Recommended Posts

For a kit based one, the best one that I have found is in the Monogram 65 Impala SS 396 2dr hardtop kit. Excellently executed engine.The ones that I have robbed the engines out of have a picture of the real impala on the box painted a horrible pale purple color. Monogram kit #2470. And like has been pointed out in several different threads on here, in scale a 396/402/427/454 are all visually the same. This kit: http://www.modelcars.com/monogram-1965-chevy-impala-ss-396.html

Since it is 1/25 scale, it might not work for you though.

I would go for the engines from either the old Monogram 66 Malibu Street Rat or 70 Chevelle 3 'n 1 as both are the only supercharged engines I know of in 1/24th scale.
