Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration has just finished up the painting and assembly of the 289 High Performance Engine to go back in our 1965 GT350 Mustang.  We decided to put all of the parts on it for a little photo shoot.

Some of our readers here may know, but for those who do not, the engine in the 65-66 GT350's was the 289 K HiPo Engine.  Additional items were added when the car was modified at Shelby American.  These items included a High Rise "Cobra" Intake Manifold, a 715 cfm Holley Carb., "open letter" Buddy Bar Cobra Aluminum Valve Covers, Tri-Y Headers, and the Cobra Cast Aluminum Oil Pan.

715 cfm Holley Carb.  List 3259.  This one is dated 513 - 3rd week of January 1965

All of the original HiPo fan mounting bolts that I have seen have had this "flag" headmarking.

 The GT350 Mustang had a unique PCV Valve hose.  The metal hex style PCV Valve was the style used on all of those model 65-66 Mustangs.
