396 identification

Hey guys, just picked up a 402 off of craigslist -- was wondering if someone could identify it. Here are the numbers:

L19 70
3969854 --> meaning it is a 1970 402?
CE162853 --> This is where I get fuzzy. Replacement? What car(s) did it come in?

Its a bare block -- was $50 a good deal?
