Default 350 Circle Track Engine shaved!

I bought a what I thought was a usable 350 for my 68 camaro only to find out the block had been lightened a lot! It appears this thing was shaves everywhere you could possible shave it. Is there any value in a block that has been modified in this way. I can no longer use for a street car as they cut the mounting perches off the sides. Thank you!

does it still have the bosses for the front mounts that you could drill and tap? we did one a few yrs ago. mounted it like they did back in 55.if not you now have a big, heavy paper weight.

Depends on where they lightened the block. Doing this to a stock block is in our opinion a NO NO. Aftermarket blocks, we do it all the time. You can probably sell it to a circle track guy, they are very conscience about weight.
