Red face 350 or 455 olds engine?

I've an Oldsmobile 98 1970, but a long time ago they've changend the engine.
The garage where I bought it tells me it's a 350 engine. Is that through?

The number near the oil funnel in front of the engine is: 396021 F
and a little A.
Could you help me to find out which engine it is?

Thanks.

Franny, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

According to this site, it`s a 455, quite a find too, 455`s are great torque monsters. also,, Make sure you tell`em it is,, you came out on the good end of the deal.

Thank you very much.
In Holland my car is not very common.
Engine defenitions is for me hard to find, because American is not my mother language so I must everything translate. And American is no English I noticed.
So Iím glad you wrote a message.
