identifying my 350 sbc

can somebody help me identify the 350 sbc engine i have in my kitcar?
i need to know year and hopefully what kind of car or truck it came out of.
the block number is 3970010 and the engine pad says:
16b498955 or it could be 16b4j8955 k08 18 cmj (sorry about numbers but it is doubled stamped and hard to read).

I know the block casting number by heart from working on a multitude of small block Chevies for the last 50 years. I got the suffix information from nastyz28.com

Scroll down on this page until you see CMJ in blue on the left. Click on that.
