Default 400 Block and Heads Worth

I found a local guy with YS long block 9799914 Date Code: L159 and #13 Heads from a 70 GTO, crank included. He says the heads match the block within days and is asking $1100 for the set. I am not a numbers picky guy and the motor would be going in a 67 Tempest so that is not a selling point for me. The engine is in good condition apart and I think the heads even had some porting done to them already. Is $1100 too much for this motor?

may be worth that for someone putting a 70 gto together.

Way to much for a typical 400 engine, plus you will never want to take an engine thats apart & just put it back together & install it. You will want to take it to a machine shop to have it checked to make sure everything is OK . There is a reason it's apart, & you will want to find out why.
