Default 1963 327 long block identification

Looking to identify this engine. Also price value. Appears in excellent original shape. From what I'm finding its a 63 327 250hp from a corvette. Block stamp F09I4S, cast date I-13-2 Nov. 13 1962? Casting# 3782870. It does have the power pack heads dated with 63 valve covers, Only thing missing distributor and intake. Wish i could post some pics. But can anyone help me out with some information?

Cast Sept 13th '62 in Flint and assembled Sept 14th, but installed in an early '63 passenger car with 250hp & Powerglide trans. Those blocks are the most popular for a Corvette "restoration engine" because people add the second Corvette suffix code and stamp their VIN derivative.
Passenger car engines did not have the car's VIN stamped on 250hp engines in '63

"Restoration" has many meanings these days. Not all of them are good.

Yes some are fine with it and some are not. I am going to put the motor up for sale as a 63 327 250hp motor only. But as of now I want to do a inspection tear down 1st on it. Thanks for your help.
