unknown engine

I have an engine that I have a block number that I can trace to a the year 1967 gm motor, but I am having a hard time trying to locate the model vehicle it came out of. Any leads as to where I can find information?

As one of the Moderators here.....let me be the first to WELCOME YOU.. here....

What type of engine is it.........Chevrolet, Buick, Olds or Caddy ?

Different members here have knowledge of different GM divisions....

IF it is a Chevrolet........there should be a code stamped on the front pad..right side above the water pump.



In the area circled.......post the entire number and letters and we can most likely help.......


DEUCE.........

Engine Numbers

I have both numbers off the block, I have E-mailed GM and have been told that the first # shows it to be a Chevy.The two numbers are as follows; front passenger side #T0112HC, the second rear drivers side #C3903352. I have been told it was a 1967, can someone can help me get more history on this motor (or information so I can research it myself)

small journal 327, may have a steel crank too. it's a keeper. even if it's the 210/ 2bbl engine, it likely came with 1.94"/ 1.5" heads (not the infamous "humpty-humps") This is a fine little smallblock for a 60s mild to middlin street car, excellent in a Nova or shoebox Chevelle/ El Camino.
