Default thinking of selling motor to fund new one

so ive been kicking around the idea of selling the motor i currently have in my truck, selling it to fund the big block sitting out back that needs love

no idea what my motor would be worth so i thought id see if anyone has any opinions or ideas as to what its worth, or other ideas

the motor has:
hencho en mexico gm 350 block stroked to 383
bored with deck plates, decks were surfaced, line bore checked

scat rotating assembly., cast steel crank, I beam rods, speed pro hyperutectic pistons, graphite coated, slat top, 10.4:1 with 64cc heads, rotating assembly was balanced by local machine shop, stock 400 balancer, scat flexplate

high volume oil pump, steel shaft and 7 qt oil pan

Dart iron Eagle heads, 180cc intake runner, 64cc chamber, ferrara valves with screw in studs, guide plates, springs good to .550 lift

retro fit erson hydraulic roller cam, linked hydro roller lifters, hardened push rods, crane aluminum full roller rocker arms, cam thrust button, timing cover designed for ti as well as timing set with torrington bearing.

professional products rpm air gap intake, erson/pbm thick cast aluminum valve covers, flowtech afterburner headers

it will not come with a distributer, carb, alt, p/s, or fan

built in 2006-2007 has approx 15k miles on it, last 3 years it only gets driven in the summer

downside to the motor....
it needs half 100 LL and half premium to run, it will run on just premium but pings sometimes, so i dont risk it

has an oil leak at the back of the motor that comes and goes, what is it? got me, it has done it since i built it in 2006-2007

the cam requires a 2500 stall converter.

will come with headers, and a welded exhaust system for a standard cab 8'bed 4x4 truck, 2 1/2'' exits in front of rear wheels has magnaflow mufflers, for the right price, was installed by local shop

there is a nick in the number 1 piston from a bad lifter when it was first built, had machien shop fix head, cleaned up top of valve and has ran good ever since, never any issues with the motor

any idea what something like this is worth? i do have a thick binder full of receipts

i have a older 454 block id like to build into a 496 and put in the truck in place of the 383, all i have is the block, possibly blocks, some sheet metal but thats about it

thanks in advance
