I purchased a 1969 Camaro 2 years ago with a 400 SBC that was supposedly dyno'd at 580 HP NA. The previous owner took it to the drag strip once and said he ran a low 11.xx 1/4 mile time with poor 60' times. The engine was built around 2005 and has ~ 1500 miles of which I put 750 miles on it myself. I would like to go with a LS based engine that would be a more streetable setup. The components to build this engine without machining or labor would cost ~$16,800 today. I am thinking about selling the complete engine air cleaner to oil pan, accessories to flexplate for $8500. Does this sound reasonable?

Thanks , for all the great feedback. Funny thing is I originally thought $6000-$6500 listing price until I tried to figure out what to list it for and try to sell it. Then when I figured out how much it would cost to just by the parts, I felt like hey maybe it would be worth 50% but I keep finding myself on the fence of putting fuel injection and cam on this engine which is loaded with good parts or trading/purchasing for a less hp LS engine. Then there is all the brackets, oil pan, headers and maybe a cam, LS7 lifters, trunion upgrade, AFM delete, lifter trays, programming computer or Holley system. I took it for a spin this weekend and the throttle response is awesome. Still on the fence but again all great input.
