I think I should modify my first post. A lot of the old big blocks have been saved by sleeving and or welding and make very good engines but it is expensive to save one. This is usually done by someone restoring a car or by someone wanting a period hot rod. In your case I would recommend going to a newer block, maybe the 454. You will come out cheaper and have more power. Sorry if I mislead you.
