How hard is it to find a sbc 400 and what is a good price to pay for a block?

A std. block either 4 bolt or 2 bolt will set you back anywhere from $200-$400

I called around to all the machine shops in my area. One of them had my 400. It was a standard bore block that had been checked for cracks. The guy wanted $200 for it. That was money well spent.
