406 sbc power, value?

So, i bought this 4 dr chevelle from my cousin. Yes, 4 dr. It was a engine build he had done in Savannah GA. He said that he had put 12k in the powertrain. Here is what he had done ...400 bored .30 , Kenny Duttweiler trick flow top end kit 400 t tranny 3200 stall eaton posi trac with eagle pistons and cranks. demon 750 dp carb griffon rad and cooler and has 11.5 to 1 compression...the car screams and has had 200 miles or so on it from a 6 yr ago build. My question is he said that it has 485 hp ...is that possible and what could i sell the engine for with tranny as NO one want a 71 chevelle w all 4 doors/ any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a good sleeper to me and yes it is possible to get 485 hp out of it. JMO

I'd put dog dish/steelies on it, keep the column shift and bench seat, etc. All original looking, but underneath- another story. You're better than half way there already, something to think about...

I have a connection on the new vinyl bench front and rear with some new factory black carpet should arrive tomorrow... have the original steering wheel with column shifter ...but already have a b@g tap shifter mounted on the floor...in fact its the last little problem i have ..keeps sticking and now wont go into low and 2nd, hoping its a easy fix!! The more i spend the more im attached,,,praying a slick paint job might cure it! it wont but im painting it anyway!
