The 327 deserves to live in a lighter car that will be driven in a spirited way.The torque curve is higher up the rpm range than a similar 305/350.
If the engine came from a 65 Vette,grab it,Corvette guys will want that block and steel crank.If its a solid lifter engine its worth even more than the hydraulic.Is the carb a Holley or Rochester?
Its a Rochester 4 barrel hot air choke.
