Identify this engine for me please.

I pulled this engine out of a '69 Camaro dressed up as a Z/28 (at least I think it is). It's a x44 code car. The block casting # is 3782870. Crank # 3735236 and has a 4-bolt splayed main. Info I've read says the block is '62-'67 327 and the crank from a 283. I've also read that only the 350 blocks were used for 302s. I can find no engine identification on the block. No numbers on the pad in front of the head or numbers over the oil filter. Could this actually be an original 302? Thanks for your help.

62-65 327 is the block casting from what I gather:
