What's "good"? Recent rebuild or a running original engine with unknown mileage?
Location is also very important..

I mean a engine block for rebuilding.

Here in Texas a 17 block that's good for rebuilding would be worth anywhere from 100-200 dollars. Not cracked or frozen up with rust.

Good but how good? If the block has been out behind the barn for 30-40 years wouldn't be worth as much as one that's been inside and still greasy and not totally rusted up.

That's what iy would worth to me anyway.

You can get a whole '17 touring with an engine already installed here:

A 1917 engine block is not that easy to find. I would say $500 for one that was able to clean up at .040" or less with no freeze cracks would be a great deal.

The price of $100-200 dollars would be for just a block not the complete engine.
A complete engine (pan,engine,transmission would be around 350-450 and thats not having cracked drums, and etc. A running engine would be 600-800 and up depending on its history.

But you never know what you will find when you get it torn down for a rebuild.

$100 for a late teens, early to mid twenties bare block is going rate around here. If anyone out there needs one for $500, I'm sure I can dig one up.

Richard G, My thought exactly. I horde non-generator blocks still, but I think I would let one go for $500! I have a '19 and a '21 blocks only I would gladly sell for that much also. And I need one of them. Two of the last past three non-generator blocks I bought were $100 apiece. And money is really tight for me, and they are extras.
Location is VERY important to the value of a T block or engine. That and whether you are needing, wanting, or need the money.
