What does this do to the value? If I brought it, would the vehicle be worth more if the correct vintage motor out of a El Camino or Chevelle was installed.

The value goes down a bit, but if you dont care about numbers matching then its fine. Just buy a car and enjoy it. I think that is far too high of a price though. They are not valued as high as chevelles. Look on ebay, you might find a better price.
