I don't think it's a tall deck block,, As far as I know they made a 427 and a 366 both tall deck block's.. I would say yours is a reg 454 block..

No factory TD 454 engines, sorry.

Look at the distance from the water pump water passage to the deck surface (where the head bolts to the block). A TD will have about 1/2" of space, as shown below:
