From HERE:

"The quickest path to block identification is the casting number and date code found above the starter on the right-hand side of the block on 221/260/289/302, Boss 302 and 351W/351C engines."

Yep.. casting number has the date as a letter and a number

C= 1960's
D= 1970's
E= 1980's

number is the actual year... so if you had an E7 casting, then you would have a 1987 engine.. or D8 would be 1978, and so on
