Tell me about this SBC

I was shooting the bull with a good friend, and had mentioned that i was wanting to locate a good short block sbc to stach away for a later build. Of course he happened to have one. I cant seem to locate where i put the block casting numbers but it do remember what it came from. It showed to be a 77-79 Motor from a Chevelle, Camaro, Nova and a few other cars. He states that its been on a stand for some time. Very honest guy. He wants 150 for the motor and its from the carb to the pan. Would anyone happen to know what kinda compression this motor would be? I will get the block and head casting numbers in a day or two. Im looking to build this motor with quality parts to make somewhere around the 400-450 WHP mark in a 77 C10.

Edit: I believe the block casting number is 14016379.
