He can put one of these motors in it and it would be worth $30k!

Sounds like they should have made 50 of them instead of 427..

If my math is right that would be 40th anniversary not 50th anniversary.

I remember GM Perf parts releasing an limited run aluminum 454 a few years back that was expected to sell out fast. I don't think the interest was there as expected.

I have a 1995 ZR1 corvette Torch red with black interior with 6000 miles that is for sale at 45!!! (production number 101 or 448). It has an all aluminum motor that was built by mercury that is 405 horse. The story was that GM didnt have the experience with aluminum motors like Mercury so they had Mercury do the motors. Sorry for the shameless plug.
