This is very true, you could get enough out of it to fix you a good 350-377-383-406
IF (that is IF) you found the right person. There are Purist people out there looking for complete motors such as yours if its the right year model for what thay are needing it for and usually willing to pay the price for it

In the 1968 model year when the 350 was introduced, blocks moved into the big journal crankshaft era and the 327 was produced both in small and big journal size. This means if you have a 327 big journal crank, you can make a 327 engine out of a 350. Later 327s from 1968/1969, when the engine was dropped, had bigger main bearing journals than earlier engines.

They say a small horse can run with a bigger one,you just have to whip it harder.
