Rocky, around here the 10 1/2" bells go for $200-$250. I've seen higher asking prices but haven't seen them move at the higher #.

The 11" Roadrunner stuff is usually $300-$350. A couple years back I picked one up for what I thought was a deal: $200. Got it home and looked it over more carefully and discovered it had been cracked, welded and ground down prior to being nicely painted, with a thick coat of paint to hide the grinding marks. I kicked myself for weeks for not looking more carefully before paying for it.

Big problem with these is shipping them. They're heavy and awkward to package for safe transport.

The 370 and 372 is also used for a big block A-Body, they generally sell in the $400 range... twocents


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

Yep, unfortunately they cracked quite often, I have a repaired one now that I would use on a street car but not on anything that would see any track time at all...
