To some extent that is true, but in most cases they sell for more becaue of the quality of workmanship. The same is true for restored cars. Professionally restored is worth more than a shadetree restoration on the same car. The point to consider is cost versus return on investment. You can spend a lot more putting 90's tech into a '60s car than you can recover in resale, even if it sells for more it cost more. In Rollie's case that is even more true, because he already has the 327 in hand. While he could sell it, by your estimation it has little value, he ends up losing money to switch to the LT1.

Rollie, I apologize for hijacking your thread, I did put a few ideas for your project in an earlier post. Good luck with your Camaro. BTW I saw the pic in your journal, it looks great.
