Don't go thinking the original was anything special, it was practically the lowest HP 350 Vette engine ever made, NOT 300 hp, likely 240-250 at best, this was at the beginning of the catalytic converter era of smog choked engines. Nothing special, exact same engine as was in a '76 3/4 ton truck except for minor differences like cam spec's and screw in rocker studs.
Only special value to it would be to the guy who has the Vette that it goes in by the #'s
