You most likely have a 283. I see no blocks w/the same cast number as the one for your heads, some are close- you might want to double check the block c/n.

the carburator on it is a holley but looks like a elderbrok or a carter.
There's a Rochester 4G from that era that looks a little like a Carter/Eddy, but I'm not familiar w/a Holley that looks like that.
