Re: Chevrolet 427 ZL-1 Engine Block Found New in Crate Stored For 40 Y
The value is diminished being that the date on the sticker is 1973, so I assume the casting date is after that. Basically you can buy the rerelease motor for $5,000 and it is ready to go and better than the original, but nothing beats the snowflake on the front of the block, for that you get to pay an additional $30,000.
I am really curious what somebody is willing to pay for it and then where will it end up? You could claim it was a replacement block if you have one of the original 69 cars and are missing your original block. Small market but unobtainable for those that need it
