Yes it would, Atleast if you plan to sell it as a stock vehicle. If you simply want to enjoy the wonderful car truck then the 305 would be alright. Depending on options included with the vehicle, the value loss can be quite significant. However if you are building a custom or a daily driver, what it has for an engine is really insignificant. Anytime you change anything on a classic, the value normally goes down. It all depends on the condition of the vehicle, and what you plan on doing with it. If you do indeed decide to change engines, I would certainly not install a 305. I would instead install a good 350. It is a much better engine with more power and dependability.
