SBC Block ID

I'm trying to decide if this short block is worth keeping around. Casting numbers at the back are 3903352 with a date of E 8 7 . It also has T4 on the other side of the bell housing flange.

Stamped numbers at the front are TO5I(1?)5KL. Also **177959 & 352948 &

T
G 12
A


For some reason I believe it might come from a full size car, but am not sure. Is this a small journal block? And if it is, does that mean anything significant? Thanx

Rick

Re: SBC Block ID

The date code on the block I believe is May 8, 1967 as well.

So as Mike noted, 1967 Impala 327/275hp engine.

Re: SBC Block ID

Rick, can you send me a picture of the engine pad? I've never seen a 67 327 block from a fullsize car with the vin stamped on it. Would be a helpful reference shot for my research.

When you put the **, could you not read those 2 characters?

Thanks, Warren
