Casting number for Z16 bell housing?

Can anyone tell me what the casting number was for a Z16 bell housing?
Was it, or could it have been 3843942 or 3866983? I think one (or both) also was used on 64-65 full size cars with a BB (409-396).

It is a totally different housing from the 444-621 style housings.

64-65 style housing

Later 444-621 style housing (the housing on the right)

I think it is 3866983. Will double check though. I believe 3843942 is for 63 409.
