In the olden golden days of FoMoCo...

The 90 degree family (221 thru 302) was referred to as a Small Block. The FE series {332-428) was referred to as Big Block.

The 385 Series came along and then began being referred to as Big Block, delegating the forgotten 390's to FE status.

The 335 Series is regarded as Small Block.

I guess you could even say that the Y-Block was the Small Block of it's day as it was over shadowed by the LINCOLN Y-Series (347/368).
