Repco crossflow

I know of a Repco crossflow head that originated from a winning speedway car. The new owner bought the head, without exhaust pipes & had new rocker shafts, rocker bushes, valves etc replaced.
It now forms part of an unfinished show car.
What would it be worth to buy / sell?

repco crossflow head "The search for the Holy Grail"

Hi I have studied the Repco crossflow history during the mid 90s
They originally cast 113 blanks of which about 30% were unusable due to bad castings. Of the remaining many were destroyed during their hayday as racing motors. Renown for beating the legendary Offenhuaser Dohc motors on the speedway tracks of Australia, NZ and the USA. and recording faster laptimes at Bathurst than Ferrari's, Alfa's and Jaguars of the time.
In 2001 there was only 41 left known in exhistance all being closely guarded as the realisation of what a Truely unique piece of World auto racing history they actually were/are. They are the first stage in the development of the Repco Reseach departments foray into competitive motor-sport. Yes this is were it started for Repco's rise to World Champion status. Subsequently prices soared as demand increased. In 2005/2006 National World collecting institutions began a worldwide search to find and aquire/purchase anything they could find.
So I pose these 2 Questions to all who search for the Holy Grail of
Holden Collectability- World Historic Motorsport- or the Head you have to have to bring your Historic racecar up to specifications to enable it to compete in its True Historic Class.
1. How hard do you now think it will be to find one?

and With the fact that GTHO Falcons are commanding prices in the high hundreds of thousands if not millions and getting it and they made 500 of them and only about 80 Repco Crossflows (now only 41)
2. How much are you now going to be expected to pay for one if you can find one?
I wish good luck to all who choose to follow the Quest ! But remember many have gone before you and returned EMPTY HANDED !!!

Rocket2rod or Repco ?

Onya Sponge, You managed to repeat the post above yours except one diffrence is the Rocket Fella says he's in the process of remanufacturing the crossflow head and your saying that Repco is doing it.
I can't see Repco bothering as they look to be more interested in what supercheap are doing rather than what us customers want.

Rocket2rod or Repco ?

I read an article in streetmachine I think it was that said as posted above by spongey that repco are doing the heads I think thats were he is getting his info from, but yer when I read it and the price I kinda thought about the original post by rocket and I dont think its a coincedence that the price is the same so I think streetmachine or whoever ran the add mite have got it wrong. who knows???
