I have a original 400 engin and tranny comb casting num 9790071. I was wondering how much this might be worth. I bought it from my uncle ran when it came out of the gto. I would like to know how much its worth and if its valuable

Orange paint? Not original to any Pontiac dude! Pontiacs of that vintage are all metallic light blue!

Give you about $400.00 bucks for it if you want a price. I could always use another spare. I guess what I'm saying is it's worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Not evey motor is a hidden treasure,especially chevy orange, and even the one's that are collectable are not worth the prices some people pay. Blame idiots like Barrett-Jackson for making everyone think the old junker in the back 40 is worth a fortune :grin.

A ya 9790071 engine is not a GTO engine it's a 2 bbl 265 hp engine 68 or 69 big car engine.That engine came with small valve heads not worth much but the block is the same as a 350 hp GTO engine . The bare block is worth about $250 maybe more if it had GTO letters on it .
