hello guys i have recently picked up a 396/325hp engine out of a 69 chevelle.
The engine has already been bored 30 over once and will need to be honed/bored again. i have everyhting except for the cam and original intake. what is this thing worth?
In todays market it's hard to say, in the last 3 months I bought a long block rebuilt 396/350hp JC motor .30 over for $950.00. Then I found a correct dated to the day 396/375hp L78 engine that I paid $2K for, was it worth it I'm not sure, if you look at ebay it was, if you look at craigslist maybe not, it was to me just because of the cast date that matched my 69 SS 396 Chevelle. good luck
Give you some more idea. I know a guy has a '66 396 complete. It is sitting on a stand. He says it was just rebuilt when he bought it and has not been run. Very clean engine. The block, heads, and intake are all '66. He wants 1500.00 and has for a loooonngg time.
Never can tell. If someone wanted it for a date coded engine for their car he could probably get it.
