If I remember correctly, that block/engine was in a 65 fastback Mustang/Shelby clone.  It had spun a bearing and the owner was trying to decide if to rebuild the BOSS engine or install something else.  They had cut the shock towers to fit the BOSS exhaust manifolds in the engine bay, etc. I think he had it rebuilt and re-installed.  The engine being possibly sold in the β€˜80s fits with when the β€˜65 was supposedly built here in Iowa.
