Just throwing this out there to you Corvette guys. I have a 1965 396 4 bolt main block casting #3855962 with a casting date of F-15-5. The block has been bored .100 over and it has been decked. Obviously the block can be restamped and if desired sleeved back to std. bore. This block was in my drag car and somehow survived years of racing with no damage.This short block has been on an engine stand for the past 25 years and I pulled it out to use for a big block swap in my Impala. After unwrapping it I decided to check block numbers and much to my surprise this is what I found.
As cool as it would be to put this in my Impala if by chance there’s someone out there that needs this motor for a correct restoration I could be persuaded to part with it.
I’m not sure of its exact value due to it being bored and decked.
This would be a great motor for a Corvette or big car restoration. If anyone is interested just let me know.

Nice of you to offer.. It's a few years too late for me. My 396/425 had a replacement block installed in it. Rest was original 1965. Hope you find a taker, they only built 2,157 of those cars. Wonder how many are left??
