First of all thank you all for helping me identify this engine, am pretty confident it's the one i want, yesterday I talk to the owner and he ask me if am still interested in the engine i said yes, but first let me ask to those who known how much does this engine worth, since I have no idea of the price and I don't want to be a low baller and I want to offer the seller a fair price, so, knowing that a lot of you have buy this types engine before, please let me know your thoughts on this one, the engine is in a motor home sitting on the side of a road for years it's the last iteration of the engine.
Thanks in advance.

All your getting is the short block, the heads, intake & exhaust manifolds are useless... Heavy Duty/Motor Home only parts.... The water pump, pulleys and brackets are all useless.... If I were you I would pass... Especially since you'd be stuck dealing with the carcass of the motorhome... If it's free I'd have a hard time taking it..... You'd be far better off getting a complete passenger car core so you have usable parts, tracking down all the stuff you would need to make a complete engine would be a nightmare...

440 $500
 
Value of low compression 360-2 barrel minus the cost to dispose of the hard to deal with wood and fiberglass body.

Looks like a 440 according to the oil filter location. Poor photo of the top of the engine but it looks like the distributor in angled and in the front.
 
Distributor is a BB as well.

Hope it's not a 413.

Odd seeing a 2 barrel on a 440, if that's what it is.
 
$300-$500 US if it can be turned over by hand.
 
I added cruise controls to a couple of my early B-bodies over the years, using '70's Cordoba stuff ( I was building cars 30-40 years ago). The only difference between different models is the mounting brackets and Speedo cables. There is a separate wiring harness for it, plus brake light switch that turns brake lights ON and cruise control OFF. Also, signal lever that carries C/C controls.
The brake booster is usually a dual diaphragm piece that resembles the '60's boosters. In these vans, they are mounted on a 90 degree bracket under the hood that makes it easy to unbolt them, without climbing under a car dashboard. They have a different bolt pattern that requires you to drill holes in your firewall. Again, I have used these in a couple of cars.

Those heads look like standard 440 heads,not the industrial heads seen on the earlier motor home engines.

Could it be a 400?
I agree though, unless it is CHEAP, the intake is useless, the exhaust manifolds are too. Pulleys are weird, brackets are weird.
How hard is it to find a car or pickup truck 440?
 
It's an RB. Bolt spacing on valley pan rails.
