Early turbo case? What do I have?

I have what I believe is an early turbo engine case. This case came with some parts my dad and I picked up some years ago. Looks to be in pretty good shape, although it has been welded and repaired. Looks as though cyl 5 had something come apart. I attached some pictures. I also noticed the case has no serial numbers, and looks like it has a "75" cast on one side. Was wondering what I've got (curious about the no serial number thing), and since I don't know that I would use it, what is the case in this condition worth? I know it would be best to have an expert look it all over to determine the true condition. May sell to fund some other projects, and I really don't know that I'll build an engine worthy of an early turbo case. Any input is welcome, thanks!

The casting # indicates this is a 3.0 Turbo or 3.0 Carrera case.

Thanks Tom, any idea why it wouldn't have a serial number?

I've heard that some warranty replacement engines didn't have all the numbering, or perhaps purchased as a replacement case?

Most likely a factory replacement case. Cast in '75 but held for spare parts.

Thanks for the input guys, any idea what a fair price would be for it? Unfortunately i don't have an early turbo car sitting around, and don't know that I have a use for it. I know it's a pretty hard to come by case, but it has been welded. May use it to fund some other stuff.

That case would have to be cut and align bored with all that welding. Just looking at the last pic it looks really warped judging from the distance between the flanges but maybe it's just the way pic is taken. Do the flanges butt up evenly?

The flanges do butt up evenly, I should have pushed them flush together for that picture. I don't know the history on it unfortunately, it may have already been run in a car in its current repaired state, just not sure.
