Engine value to Z28 owner
« on: November 17, 2010, 12:36:25 AM »
69 DZ302 Casting 3956618 Stamped V0219DZ VIN 19L52XXXX

What would this block be worth to the owner of the original car?   ???  (I already have the name of the owner.)
To any other Z28 enthusiast?

Thanks.

Please post the entire VIN. This is one of the requirements to post in the orphans section.

Please include the item type and the partial VIN as part of the subject line, for example: "I just found POP 9N654321". This standardized format of the VIN is important to help people search the forum. (This format does not need to be used in the text of the message.)

Can you please post the complete VIN? The owner has little chance of finding the block without it.
No risk with that cause they could prove they own the car.

The risk is if you are looking for your block and post your VIN. There's the chance a restamper could 'find' it in his inventory. :(

Ed, sorry about that. I was not aware that this was a requirment. 

Kurt, I already have the name of the owner, that's why I was asking the orginal question.  WHat's this worth??
Please delete my post.  (What section should I be asking this question?)

I'd love to do that if somebody could just let me know what it might be worth...  (Who is "James in Florida"??)

Obviously the value of the car would go up dramatically if it was a matching numbers car. 

Let's pretend I don't have this block.  Maybe I should be asking what the value difference is between a matching number Z28 and a non-matching number Z28??

IMO it's worth what someone is willing to pay. Anywhere from 500 to 5000. Is it a bare block, short block? Has it been magged for cracks? With that engine assembly date the VIN could be 100 units on either side of it.

I would think that the block you have would be worth about $3000 - $5000 depending on the condition to the present owner.

i paid $3500.00 to get the original engine back for my 68z.  Keep in mind that was a complete engine.

James was a guy in Florida that found out he had a 67 z motor in his t bucket and the car was  still around and being  restored as we speak . He took the motor out of the t bucket and worked out a deal with the 67 z owner. It was a great story
