Pistons?

Hi guys,
I bought a 327 for rebuilding to put in my truck. While the block was a 327, the rest seems to be a hodge-podge of whatever the guy could get his hands on; for instance: 60cc heads on one side with 70's on the other and a 302 crank.
Right now I need to figure out the pistons, the only marks on them are 740P on the inside. They look fine, but are they for the 327, a 302 or a 350? Did those engines have different heights from the pin to the piston top or was it one size fits all?
The pistons are flat tops with reliefs and look fine; can't really tell if they're cast or forged, but I'm guessing cast. Has anyone ever come across these ones before? Any help would be appreciated before I buy a new set for new reason.
Thanks
Howard
