Help identifie this engine, early corvette?
Block casting #3970010
Suffix casting on right front of block#VO482400, No letters or partial vin.
From LEFT to right, overbellhousing on block. In the first valley there is the block casting, then a big time clock, then #0298.
This engine has a two barrell carb and a metal cast intake.
And the peg on the block where the suffix code is stamped is square peg looking, unlike the #3970010 original block I have in my 72 chevelle that has a square block with long edges on both sides. see photo's.
And one other thing the chevelle engine was orange from the factory and the other unidentified block was blue from the factory. What do the different colors mean?
