You'd get very wet trying to bore a 305 to that of a 327. There are, however, stroker crankshafts which will take a 305 into the range of a 327 but this is vastly different to boring an engine as this takes a new crankshaft along with the pistons. Using a crank intended to make a 350 into a 383, when used in a 305 will increase its size to 328, since this is usually accompanied with a .030 inch overbore you get 332, which is a common upgrade to to the 305 sold as a kit.

The 327 from the factory uses a 4 inch bore and a 3.25 inch stroke. The 305 uses a 3.736 inch bore and the 350's 3.48 inch stroke. The wall thickness of a 305 is not enough to accommodate the .264 inch (more than a quarter inch at .25") and have any strength left. The blocks between these engines are use cylinder wall cores of different thickness, so while the outside looks the same and they will interchange most parts internally and externally, the 305 just can't be bored to 4 inches so they don't share pistons and their crankshaft balance is different, so even though a 305 and 350 have the same stroke and the shafts will interchange in the block, the counterweights are different by size and weight. The 383 build on a 350 uses a crank with a 400 stroke (3.75 inches) with a .030 inch overbore on the 350's 4 inch bore. The 332 build on a 305 uses the 383 crank with the 3.75 inch stroke with a .030 inch overbore on the 305's 3.736 inch bore. Unless the 332 crank is purpose built for the stroker 305, it would be a rebalanced (lighter) 383 crank. The old 400 crank has larger diameter bearing journals and can't be fitted to a 350 or 305 block without turning the journals to a smaller diameter so it would fit into the 350 or 305 block's main bearing saddles. But his is where all this small block stroking started.

Pretty much what Old Bogey said. As for the '62, if it's not a rust bucket it would probably bring more as a complete car. Old four doors aren't just parts cars anymore. Just don't expect to get rich off it.

1962 was the 1st year for the 327, so it may be just that and the guy doesn't know what he is talking about....305s didn't come along until the mid-late 70s......You are best to check the suffix code, which is stamped just ahead of the pass side head on a pad on the block...It will tell you what the engine block really is. A hint may be whether the pass side head has the boss for mounting an alternator...If not, it at least is using earlier heads.
