65 Hipo Bare Block - 5F07K610027

If you find an engine, tranny, buck tag, build sheet, or any other documentation with a K VIN, post it here so it can hopefully be reunited with its Kar. You can also make an 'In Search Of' post with the VIN you're hoping to find.

65 Hipo Bare Block - 5F07K610027

Bare block. No main caps. VIN is 5F07K610027. That 3rd from last "0" is stamped low, but pretty sure it's a 0. Jan 13, 1965 cast date. I got it along with the heads in Nashville.

One cylinder is scored. The story was that it was recently rebuilt but broke a ring. Verified it's .030 over. My machinist thought taking it to .060 would take care of the scoring, but make your own opinion. 7 of the 8 cylinders have a cut or step at the bottom...possibly resleeved? See picture of the underside of the two cylinders in the followup post. Cylinder on the left has the step and the adjacent one does not. Haven't had it magnafluxed.

It was advertised on the Nashville craigslist and discussed at links below. Someone else got the good stuff: rods, caps, etc....except for the heads. :)

Just putting this out there in case someone ends up with the Kar. Otherwise it's going to be a conversation piece / end table for my shop!

Thanks,
Rich

Picture of the step. 7 of the 8 cylinders have this at the bottom.
