If the suffix "GMJ" is correct, it's not showing up so could be a truck application. The numbers before the suffix is a date code (day and month), the other string is a partial VIN of the original vehicle the block was installed in.

The "010" casting number is a nominal 4" bore large journal SBC block.

3970010 is a common casting # for a 350

In the numbers 15b474835
The "1" stands for Chevy
The "5" stands for 1975
The "B" stands for Baltimore

The last six numbers are a part of the vehicle VIN. These numbers match what is on the vehicle when it was built at the factory, hence #'s matching.

I'm not sure about the rest of the numbers & letters
