What is a 4 bolt main block worth?

I have a 010 block core with a crank, cam and pistons etc, still in it that has been sitting for years witht he heads off. It had 882 heads. It had spun bearings when I got it years ago. What would this be worth to sell?

i think rebuildable small block cores are worth something like $150, and there are still some people out there that are willing to pay more for those extra main cap bolts, so maybe a couple hundred.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Probably depends on the part of the country you live in and the demand on those parts. I ahve been lucky and got some complete 350 engines with 010 blocks for $100 up but as with anything I would see what your market will bear and go for the max.

Depends on year, engine code, cast date and build date. For the guy going back to original and your 010 block is coded for a camaro, possibly up to $750. If non camaro
code, then $100-300 depending on cast date.
