suffix code = Bad news?

I just got the suffix code off of my block ( TO630TSK ) and evidently this is a truck block. The casting number ( 361959 ) identified it as a 454 used in cars and trucks. Date code shows cast in 76'. Is this a bad block to build on for a hot rod car? oh and by the way its a fresh complete short block. flat tops, 274H xtreme energy cam, .020 ground crank and rods, bored .030 over, plugs, timing gear / chain. Should I scrap the block and get one for a car or is there any difference? It's a 454 2 bolt main.

I would say its no good, just send it to me, I have been looking for a paper weight about that size for a while now. Just Kidding I would think its as good as a car engine, I would say build what you have, sounds like its better than half built now. How much HP are you trying to get?

If its the one used in cars and trucks, its the short deck block. The big block truck engine used in medium and heavy duty trucks was the tall deck, but as far as I know it only came in 366 and 427.

Regular trucks like a 3/4 ton cheyenne got car (short deck) blocks.
