327 block with balance crank worth?

Have a 1967 327 small journal bored .030 with ARP main studs. Mains have been aligned bored. I hadThe 327 factory forged crankshaft turned .010 and balanced.. Motor has less than 8 miles on it.. What do you think the block and crank are worth in today's market? Block is in excellent condition, I sold all other componets to the motor, this is just what I have left.. Going for a 383 combo

If all the other components are sold it doesnt really matter if it has been balanced. They balance the crank to the rods and pistons. so that means nothing. if its a true 67 block its not a forged crank. the only forged 327 cranks came in the small journal blocks. the 67 is a large journal block. so i would say 75 bucks for the crank, and about 150 - 100 bucks for the block. Unless it has parts in it they aren't worth a lot. It is possible that they used an old block in 67 but i doubt it, are you sure its a small journal block?

I got my entire rotating assembly plus a transmission with carb intake etc for 300 bucks. AND it is a 65 block with the forged crank.

You're a year off blight, the '62-'67 327's were all small journal and were forged, the '68-'69 were large journal and "most" were cast with some forged hipo cranks

I see you are in IN. How close to the NW corner of OH? I have been watching for a small journal 327 block for a project. Made up your mind on the price yet?

Why did you part out the engine instead of selling it complete with so few miles on it?

engine sat a alot, never really got to run it much as the car was over at my parents garage. I recently brought the car to my garage and decided to go throught it the check things out since it sat. I decided to go ahead and keep it since the block and crank are the same year as my camaro.. going with another sbc build
