I've got a 1967 289 block, with aftermarket RHS 185 heads.

In November I went to get the car inspected, when I got to the MAC Center they said that since I didn't have matching cylinder heads, I needed to crush a 1971 or older 4.7L or larger engine car registered in MA in the last 5 years.

I had the engine built at Forte's, Mike says other folks have successfully gotten their emissions exemption with an old block. I want to know which MAC center they went to, to see if I can do the same thing.

Otherwise, I want to know where to find a car to crush.

Thanks for reading,
Danner

With the goodies you have bolted to that 289 you're going to have a very difficult time convincing anyone that is an old engine. Pretty sure in the day a 289 came with a carburetor :) Sure the block may be old but that's all. I would suggest searching craigslist for a junker. The season is right around the corner.
