69 350 cu. in. long block value

I have been saving this 69 engine for many years and decided I am not going to use it, so I need to figure out what it is worth with the one year only heads and sell it and many other parts.

350 originally a truck engine – 010 block, standard 4" bore, 4 bolt mains, long block with crank, pistons, rods, etc.
Block 3956618 date B129 (Feb 12, 1969) Built in Towanda, MI used in 1969 302, 327, and 350.

Heads 3927186 date: G318 (July 31, 1968) 64 cc, 1.94 intake, 1.50 exhaust used on 69 302, 327, and 350.

This would be a good candidate for a period correct 350 SS, Z28, etc. Will need reassembled with new rings, bearings, and gaskets. Don't believe it will need to be bored. Very good condition - stored in heated garage.

So, what is it worth.

Thanks,

Ron

Re: 69 350 cu. in. long block value

IMO $200 to $300 on a good day. Honing alone will probably not do the job so it will most likely have to be bored .10 over at least. That will mean new pistons. Also will need to turn crank and resize rods. Heads should also be rebuilt. Valve job and change the seats for unleaded fuel

By the time you’re done with the rebuild you’ll have way more invested than you can buy a crate motor for.

Ron, is there an engine suffix code stamped on the front pad behind the alternator on the passenger side of the block?

The code is VO217WK. There is no partial VIN.

Re: 69 350 cu. in. long block value

I agree with John's comments. If you had a HA, HB, HE vs the WK suffix code then you could get more money for sure. If the motor was all put together and running, you would also get more money, probably $800 - $1000. However, all torn apart and needing some time at the engine shop, I would say the max you can get is $500, but probably more in the $300-$400 range. Unless you somehow found someone restoring a 69 truck that wants a date correct motor, there isn't much value with the date codes of this particular motor.
