1972 Z28 rebuilt short block

I recently purchased a 1971 restored Z28. Engine in car is a 1,200 mile professionally rebuilt 1972 Z28 automatic short block which I'm thinking of selling to build a 383 to 412 small block as car isn't matching number anyway. Thought someone restoring a 1972 Z28 may be interested in short block ( keeping the Brodix heads and hydraulic cam currently installed on it ). Engine is currently in car and can be inspected and heard running if you live nearby eastern TN. Below is information on the short block:
Casting: 3970010 - 4 bolt main
Cast date: C192 - March 19, 1972
Passenger side pad stamp: V0404CKT - April 4, 1972, no VIN number stamp
Engine is a 59,000 documented original mile short block when rebuilt. Restorer and I have put approximately 1200 miles on engine since rebuild.
Original forged steel crank, standard size bearings on mains and rods.
Original untouched pink pressed pin connecting rods.
Forged Wiseco flat top pistons with 2 valve reliefs, Pro03A3 +.030"
Speed Pro piston rings
New std size crank, rod and cam bearings
Block was tanked, magnafluxed, bored/honed .030" over, new freeze plugs and oil galley plugs installed.
All I would be selling is block, crank, rods and pistons all assembled. All accessories such as heads, intake, damper, oil pan, oil pump, timing cover, etc. I'm keeping.
If interested contact me at edbon85@tds.net or PM me. I haven't set a real firm price so I am open to offers, however I have a pretty good idea as to it's value.
Thanks...Ed M.

Saw this LT-1 posted on NastyZ28 as well - GLWS
The LT-1 was the ultimate 350 cu in V8.
It's no wonder that chevy reused the name (LT1) in the 90's and again in the new C7 vet.

Thanks !!
For someone restoring a 1972 Z28 this short block would be the ticket as it is professionally rebuilt, had only 59K original miles on it before rebuild and now approximately 1200 miles since rebuild. I'd sell the entire running engine which has Brodix 220 heads, Holley dual plane 300-36 Contender/Street Dominator intake and a very, very stout hydraulic flat tappet cam but figured someone doing a full restoration would just want the short block and then install the correct 3973487 heads, solid lifter LT-1 cam and correct Winters intake manifold. I know I'd love to find a 1971 Z28 block with the CGP code for my car. An interesting tidbit about this '72 Z28 block, the engine was assembled on Tuesday 4/4/1972 and the last 1972 Camaro rolled off the assembly line Thursday 4/6/1972 due to the strike. Most likely the car this engine was slated for was destroyed ( thus no VIN stamp ) as the 1972 Camaro's left idle on the assembly line due to the strike did not have the necessary front body structure for the 1973 bumper regulations. What I want for it you couldn't rebuild another one and I doubt it would have such low miles, original standard size crank and pink rods. Most likely I will remove it from the car, store it until the right buyer comes along and build a 383 stroker with aluminum heads for my 1971 Z, unless of course I come across a CGP code block for my car.
