How do I identify a 318, 340, 360 Mopar??

I found a modified and chromed '79 360 for sale for $200.00, how do I tell if it's a 360 and not a 318? The guy guarantees that it runs good. I'm a Chevy guy so I'm not real familiar with Mopar. Is the 360 a good dependable motor? How much H.P. does a 360 have? Did they have any known problems with bearings and stuff? Is a '79 360 just as good as the older ones?

Look on the front of the block just below the driver's side head. There should be a stamped number there which will include the displacement.
