The first block, with the flanges on it, is a standard Cast Iron block, interestingly modified to cross-flow configuration.

The second block, with the tubes on it, is an early, transition/conversion block. Notice that it has a thin base flange and a flat, non-turbulator combustion chamber.

Value wise, it's what ever someone wants to pay.
