The block is identical to the generation 1 350. When you study the LT1 it's obvious, it was directly designed after the Generation 1. except that it's reverse flow cooled so it's got additional coolant ports, the coolant passages on the deck aren't the same as a generation 1 and the water pump on the LT1 is driven off the cam gear. The camshafts between the LT1 and the Generation 1 interchange, the bore and stroke is the same as well. So yeah if you can find one of a generation 1 you should be in the ball park.
