one mans junk another treasure?

Hey met a guy today and said he had some blocks for sale and some heads. I went to the mans house and for 50 dollars i got 882 487 and some 450 heads. A 3858180 block i think its a 327? But my question is i also got a shortblock 3970014 and its been sitting outside and when i opened the pan it seem to be fresh its a 350 2 bolt main? any ideas? But my other question is the 327 came with a finned set of valve covers with a chevy logo in the middle. Are these orginal valve covers? Also is this 327 block go in a 67 camaro and is worth anything i habe the crank out of it. It seems runined threw a rod bearing. also got a edelbrocker preformer sbc intake and a rebuilt new quadrajet. And intake cast number 346250. Any good finds?

This is what comes close to the first block casting number
3933180....327...68-69...2
The 3970014 is a common number.
3970014....350...70-76...2 or 4
The valve covers sound like aftermarket covers. The only finned small block factory covers I ever seen have "Corvette" in raised letters.
As for the heads you have:
376450.....75-81...262/267/305..6 or 7 exhaust bolt holes, 60cc chamber
333882.....74-80...350/400......76cc chambers
3973487....71-72...350..........1.94/1.5 or 2.02/1.6 valves, was also used on '71 350/330hp LT1, 75cc chamber
To know what each block came out of we need the suffix code which is stamped on the passengers side block deck, right behind where the alternator rides. It`ll look something like this example: CHL

The intake cast number 346250 is a favorite of the Circle Track racers. It's one of the best flowing stock Intakes. 249 also.

the 350 number is 12l559241 and T0302(6g0)TL the three in parenthesis are any of thos three its unclear.

The 327 is T027HO. i have the crank for the 327 do u want the numbers of that? The crank was out of it but he said that was the matching crank

I dont think i did bad for 50? Are the 450 heads worth any? 487 is what i run on my other 327 3352 is its block number

There is no codes for TL.
For $50 you came out very well.
Look on the bellhousing flange of the 327 and find the date code. It`ll look like this example: B 6 9 This would break down to:
B - The month B - Feb. 6 - The date Feb 6th. 9 - the year 1969 or whichever years that block was being casted. Also what is the number on the 327 shaft?

If it`s G 1 7 then it would be
July 1st 1967.
Or it could be July 17th 1964 if the 64 is in the same rowe of the code.

All that for $50? That's a pretty good score. If you're looking to make money off of it, just the 350 "014" block is an easy $50...for your money back. The rest is all profit. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a bunch of guys on here that would probably give you $50 for the 882's. I don't know why...but I'm sure they would...

this may not sound like the best plan but I want to perfect my port and polishing. Mostly opening exhaust ports and blending the fuel bowel. The last two heads guys bought them on craiglist and ,made me some money. So the 882 and 487 are gonna be doners. The guy said the 450 heads came on the 327 and i may leave those stock. I def dont think it was a bad fine. He also was trying to give me a 56 ford truck cab free. And it wasnt even rusty

Sounds like you got some nice valve covers and some scrap iron. Some people can make something decent out of what you got, I'm the type to sell it for $50 to get rid of it. Vortec engines, gen III engines, and LT engines all can be had in great condition for anywhere from $250-$1000. IMO it makes spending time/money on stuff like that kinda fruitless. Its enjoyable, but fruitless. Kinda like a bad drug habit i guess.

A 327 never came with 450 heads, I already posted what they come off of. Someone may have put those heads on the 327, but the factory sure didn`t.
376450.....75-81...262/267/305..6 or 7 exhaust bolt holes, 60cc chamber
They are basic smogger heads best used as boat anchors or tire chocks.
