Free motor, what is useable?

Hey I was just given a free 267 Chevy. I was doing some research about the motor and would like to know if this is worth anything. This came from carb to pan and fan to transmission.The motor runs like a top so i think that it's one of those things that is to good to get rid of.

From what I have found out

-has the same crank as a 350
-same connecting rods
-small chamber heads that are the same as a 305
- intake is interchangeable
-all of the tin will fit on to any small block

My real question is do I part this out keep what I can use. Or do I keep it complete and save it for some thing??

Just looking for opinions. I know it has no power and very little potential so don't tell me that please.

the heads are not 305 heads, there specific to the 262/267's and fit nothing else ( clearence issues ) . the crank is the same but I'v heard it would need re balanced to use in a 350. but if it runs good, somthing like a T bucket it would work well in. they only produce 115 HP stock, but you don't need much for a T bucket. as for being worth anything, you got it for free because it is a 267. you couldn't sell it if you wanted to.

The crank may not be the same as a 350 crank, although the stroke is the same. Even if it has the same casting number, it may be machined differently to balance the smaller pistons.
