IMHO if someone isn't interested in giving 3-4k for "THE matching numbers engine" from their Hi-po solid lifter late 60's Chevrolet they either do not want it or they can not afford it... there really is not other reason as the value added to a such a car would be as much or more than the purchase price.

You have to keep in mind when figuring value that ANY hard to find component of the motor can be had, but the block is only one of one to your car . If you have the original block in your car and everything else is incorrect,that is better than having a 100% show car correct complete engine with a NOM block, even though all the correct components will be more expensive to repalce than the block[if you are lucky enough to find it].  If any  Z motor has a  market value of 6K, than its worth alot more than that if its yours. If you compare 2 zs that are similar,except one is factory  block and the other repalced or decked , you are going to find a much bigger difference in market value than 5K...

Hello!!! I'm new to this site and not trying to hi-jack this post, but after reading these responses I was wondering what real $$$ loss value is there to a car that has been restored using another 302 block or restamped numbers during the restorations process...A loss greater than $1,000 to $5,000 or more than..

I think there would be variables :available legitimate documentation, year of car in question(1968 being the hardest to validate without ###). To answer your question I would think a minimum of 5K on a Z28 and the sky would be the limit on say a ZL1 or COPO.

It's a emotional thing, Everybody would love to have a real L-88, L-72, LS-6 Etc. But you could build a better engine for the price you would have to pay for one these days. (it's getting better) If you don't have the matching car, what's the difference? All somebody is buying are the original stamps, Only matters if you have the matching car and vice versa. Hope you guy's can work out a fair deal.

Seems 68's take the hardest hit for non matching in the Z's... BORN WITH correctly restored 68 Z's in good colors will bring an additional 10k when compared to a similar non matching car.

I know this is an old thread but with distributors and alternators bringing 1000-1800$ and thats for a dated component-no serial numbers then I would think that a born with block would be the "Icing on the cake" to get the only block the cars was born with would be worth 4-5k, course if the owner of my block would offer that I'd probably choke on it.

For sure it's worth more to the orig. owner than anyone else and that is where it becomes complicated. Car will be worth approximately 33% more but how important is that or worth to the current owner. I found the owner to our DZ short block that had been in our 83 purchased Corvette since 1979 and that mouse now resides with the camaro it left home with. Grin  Sold it to him at an extremely good price and it still took him over 4 months to make a decision. http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=145097

Chick, I just read your story.  Wow, that's pretty cool!  I'm glad to hear it all worked out. Now I justy need to find the person that has the car that goes with my block...  (I have his name, I just don't know where he lives.)
