Brand new never used, as pictured, as is, bought decade or so ago to make a man cave coffee table when I was married, that idea didn't go over well, wife is now gone, maybe someone could use this, I don't drink a lot of coffee and a Viper is not in my future.
There is one Mopar casting number pictured. This another faint date, but looks to be a design or series date, but not casting date? "11'10.9", some delivery possible east of Mississippi. $2000 plus freight/insurance Contact by PM.
I understand the normal and expected hesitation with this being my first post on the forum.
I'm sure with effort I can establish credibility for those sincerely interested in this block.
Meaning, I will not be offended.

Yeah, that is only thing they are good for. You can't get cyl for them anymore from the dealer. So, coffee table time!!!

So I am thinking a chrome finish like the Chrome Plasma by Edelbrock intake manifolds for the block, a slight green 1/2" tempered glass top, dark oiled walnut base, and some hidden internal soft LED lighting, and decaf, any guess on mileage?

Thanks guys, I tried.

What generation is that block? I'm guessing maybe 1 or 2? I've only seen 3+ stuff since I've had mine apart a few times, but I could have sworn Prefix replaced a sleeve or two when I sent it to them after my last rod bearing failure. I could see gen 1/2 stuff not being as available though.

Those are G1 blocks

I have not a clue what generation my block here is, or if that is indeed a faint date code in the casting, but I am all ears on the subject.

Well, yesterday I picked up my 40"x24" beveled tempered glass table top.
I've got a call into my exotic wood distributor for a 2" solid chunk of walnut for the base.
I'll share some pics for anyone interested as progress continues.

Yes, pics are definitely welcome. One of these days I'll get around to building one. Probably LS based, but you never know, a V10 could be in the cards.
