327 thrown rod

400$ for a 327 with a thrown rod worth it or no?

Any good parts on it? Like AFR heads, good carb and intake? If not, I would not give much at all for it. Thrown rod meaning the crank, rod, and the block are destroyed? Not much there to work with.

Re: 327 thrown rod

Unless you disassemble it and look at the heads and crank and cylinder walls, it is a parts motor worth $50 to $100 or just junk. Depending on the year, casting number, application, etc. it could be worth more, and might be worth a bundle to the owner of a car that it came from.
I have a complete small journal 300 hp / 327 under the bench in excellent condition, that I feel is worth about $600, but will probably go to the junk as it seems everyone is going LS motors.
In central IL, old school 60s and 70s parts are still pretty cheap.

Re: 327 thrown rod

better open it up and make sure there is not a window in one of the cylinders!! I sure wouldn't pay any $400 for it. Maybe $50-150 if it was a buildable block and crank

The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO"

Re: 327 thrown rod

Will the seller allow it to be opened up and checked? As others have stated, a thrown rod can rip a hole in its cylinder wall, or chew up the journal on the crankshaft, or both.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
