Default 56 engine block and trans value?

Hello gentlemen (and ladies),
I am new to this forum and I am a musclecar guy. I acquired some 56 vette parts many years ago and I am inquiring to all of you of their possible value and/or if they are worth anything. I have a 56 283 block and crank, heads with domed pistons and a 4 speed automatic transmission, one complete tranny, one for parts (I was told). Block has been sitting for years and has some surface rust. I also have the aluminum corvette valve covers, heads and the like. Does anyone have any ideas or advise? I am a pontiac musclecar guy and I frequent the pontiac forums often and know those gtos well. Vettes, I need help. Thanks to all in advance.

Since krzn already rained on your parade a little,it won't hurt so much when I tell you the 56 auto was a 2-speed cast iron Powerglide. The valve covers should have the staggered bolt holes as should the heads. There's a book out about Chevy casting numbers which would help you identify the parts you have. It's VERY difficult to say what any given part is worth! Best way is to get multiple sources like Hemmings,maybe some vette magazines,Craigslist and the ubiquitous flea bay to get an idea of what your parts are worth. Good Luck!
