Post 302 /m22 price

Rebuildable long block ,confrimed 302 #3970010
1969 z-28 Camero. I have been offered $1000.00 for the combination. I don`t need the set up and want to fund my 57 pick up project . So i can sell this one. Should i hold out for more or sell it at this price? Not looking to get rich.
Please advise.

I would think in the right market you should be able to get twice that amount. Try some of the pony car sites or hemmings, you might even contact a couple of Camaro specialist. I'm a Ford guy , but one of my buddies in the Air Force in '72 had a '69 Z28 and it was wicked.

Sorry Slider, But if your block # is 3970010 (double-o-one-o-), then you have a 68-76 350 ci. The #s for a 302ci are as follows: 3917291 68-70 302,327,350 / 3927186 68-72 302,327,350 / 3827187 69-70 302,350 / 3928455 68 302,327 / 3931639 68 302 . This is according to my Chevy #s book (it hasn't been wrong yet anyway).Check the flywheel flange if it is round then it very well could be a 302. Also, check under your timing cover for any #s near the cam bore, if there is a 10 and a 20 these #s are the percentages of tin and nickel content of the block. Tin to help the iron heat and cool more evenly, and nickel to make the bores harder for less wear. If there is only one # 10 or 20 this will be the nickel content. A block with these #s is more desirable than without. Let me know what you find!

There's a guy on EBay who sells 302 clones for a $1700 starting price.

A 3970010 is a very common engine block. All 3970010 blocks I have run across are 10-20 blocks which makes them desireable from a durability standpoint. From a valuable standpoint I can buy re-buildable 3970010 long blocks from my local salvage yard for $150.00 complete with 882 smogger heads. You can find these in everything Chevy made from the dark ages:Caprices, Novas, Camaros 1969 to 1976 or so, anything that had a 350 or large journal 327 in it.

Engine combos and casting numbers are often cloaked in a myth of mis-information and misunderstanding by poor mis-guided folks or clever people who make a living off of selling used 350's as "Corvette Motors" or original 302 blocks that don't have the id numbers on the pad anymore because they have been "decked".

Anyway, any 4" bore small block with large journals could be used to make a 302 anyway so it is possible your engine combo could have a short stroke crank instead of a "3.48" in it but it's very doubtful. In the early eighties I must have run across 20 1969 Camaros with Z/28 badges and 2 barrel engines with automatic transmissions.

Check for the all important DZ or MO stamping....
The 302 I got in a 67 Chevelle was decked and turned the motor into a cheapie 327 with original 302 parts in it....Get what I am saying???? I had a guy hot on the 302 for $2200.00 until he saw the stamping was gone....

If it doesn't show "DZ", or "MO", for whatever reason, it's just a 4" bore 350 block.

yeah the 3970010 bolck was in everything, the 350 I just pulled out of my 74 Camaro is a 3970010 block, and the 350 in my 72 Chevy C10 P/U is a 3970010 block also. mortec lists a 302 SBC block with the 3970010 block #s.

mortec.com says

389257.....302.....67....2

3892657....302.....67....2...Z-28 Camaro

3914678....302.....68....2...Z-28 Camaro

3932386....302.....69....4...Z-28 Camaro

3956618....302.....69....4...Z-28 Camaro

3970010....302.....69....4...Z-28 Camaro
