Default 1968 Camaro L-78 VIN 18N473322 Anyone know the car ? I have the block

I got this bare block with a 1968 Camaro I purchased. Thought I would put on here in case someone has the car before I put it up for sale.

The block casting number is 3935440 cast date looks like F 13 8 (June 13 68). Could be 18 ?

Stampings on the pad are T0715MQ 18N473322 (July 15).

The guy I bought the car from said he bought it out of the US approx. 15-18 years ago.

If you have the car or know of the car please contact me. I am in Alberta Canada.

I have at least one other car that has the same assembly date block but its almost 3700 vins away. Also have another block on the list that has the same or possibly the same casting date.

Default What is this block worth ??

Well gave it about 3 weeks, no luck in mating it to the original car. I will put it up for sale but what is a fair price, never sold a block before. I am in Canada so shipping may be an issue. The block is suppose to be standard bore with no issues. Thanks.
