Just wondering what a good running, complete turnkey 1967 327 is worth these days? Not just a full engine, but stater, water pump, power steering, alternator, air cleaner, intake, carb, distributor, wires, coil and exhaust manifold.
Less than a 1968 that has the larger crank journals and accessory holes in the head to mount the accessories closer to the motor to prevent belts being thrown. Worth much more to some one who wants a date code correct rebuildable core to build for his restoration. But because of the small crank it is cost prohibitive to build it as a 355 or a 383 which most want over a 327 because bigger is better.
By looking at the block casting it seems to be a 1965, but how about the stamping any idea what IHAR engine option would be?
In 1965 base engines were not stamped. Only the high horse small block (such as the 365 horse 327) or a BBC (396 or 409) was marked with a partial VIN.
There will be a date code for build date and a two letter engine application code telling you what car the motor was installed in, power rating, and transmission used. This will be stamped upon the engine ID pad of the block in front of the passenger head.
