It is a rare motor, but the fact that is is so old and has already been bored so deeply may make the block useless as it is likely rusted and would need boring again. But I doubt it can be as you can only cut so deep. The heads can likely be reworked though. Just me opinion and I am no expert.

In 1961 it was one of Pontiac's top dogs but with its rough history it probably is past its monetary peak. Unusual paperweight though!
