My neighbor has what's supposed to be a 300hp '65 327 Chevy. It's from a stalled project he wants gone. He's offering it to me at $500. I like the guy, and don't want to screw him but that feels a little high to me. It's pretty, with fresh orange paint, but that doesn't mean much. He says it was rebuilt in the 70's and he just put a new timing set in it. It may need a new intake manifold (weird?) and oil pan. I haven't check the numbers on this thing yet because it's in a tarped car under snow but I will before I buy it. It was a running car before it became a project. I saw it last summer and it has camel hump heads. I'd tear it down and do a cam and gasket set at the very least, and anything else that was needed. This would go in my '35 3 window with a t-10. I want a vintage SBC, so please don't tell me a flathead would be cooler. I'm already mocked up with a 283 but that needs head work and this is 300hp.... Is he on point at $500? Would I be out of place offering $400 or less?
