Ya I've found some references to the 400CUI SBC becoming a 406.
What is the fabled 409CUI now?

the 409 and 348 were GM's first run at a big block. late 50's into the first half of the 60's. the 409 came stock with 409HP with 1 4bbl or 425hp w/ 2 4 bbl. they were a great motor, but they had heavy pistons and didn't rev esaily and were not tolerant of a missed shift overrev.

I know this. Used to be a truck engine and then people would put it in the impala, thus the "409" model in my room. Was it a BB or a SB?

Big Block
So was the 348
The heads had the plugs under the valve cover like an International motor does.
Freaky but healthy sounding engine!

There's an ex Chevrolet dealer in the area here,
that has an exsquisite 64 Impala SS409 2-4 Barrell Rochester. So beautiful it makes me cry it's not in a museum for everyone to enjoy!
I think it has less than 9,000 miles on it.

It was his grandfather's, Father's:
Now his. The 70 Chevelle SS 454 COPO LS7 is his bought whe he returned from Nam, and so are the other treasures.
Nothing in the building is for sale.
Not even his son's 70 K30 DRW P/U that I helped him restore, then he rolled it.

If he rolled it, then you know *everything* in there is for sale - at the right price. Remember my teachings to young grass hopper? Why don't you just stab a butter knife in my neck? It'd hurt less!!!

I'm not in the market for that stuff now:
I'm fighting City Hall to get into my new building, and should have never closed on my old one. I have enough projects started and in a warehouse playing on them on.
Actually, the vacation is quite enjoyable.
The Turbo tow truck should be ready by the end of summer, the F.O.R.D. one anyway. The Chevy should take a year.
But the butter knife, that would hurt. Maybe even the dry price.
LOL

I know they sound ridiculous but they work 100%. IMHO if they react badly to it, I don't want to sell them my parts.
