    What does 16 K miles mean to the engine? 
     If running, and various tests, compression, cyl wear  reviewed with head off, pan removed and rods and mains viewed, hopefully  center main not adjusted with out front and rears adjusted too.

    With out confirmation, a parts engine is just that. 

    How ever if little wear is evident /  then the value is more.

    Two friends had Essex 6 engines re done and prices were $6k  and  $9k dollars US.

    The  better the evaluation procees and confirmed findings the more value.
