As you stand facing the car, there should be a number stamped in the block just in front of the head on the left side. There should be a little bit of the block that extends past the head. If the number is missing, the block was probably rebuilt and the deck milled. That number and a little work on the internet should tell you exactly what it is.

Go to google, and search for:

Small Block Chevy ID

That will get you a bunch of sites with ID info.

http://www.mortec.com/ is a great casting number ID site.

You can also search for Chevy VIN decoder sites, and (if the engine is original) find out what engine it is from the VIN code.

It is on bottom of dashboard noramlly on driver's side. Look through the bottom of the windshield as you are standing outside the car. A repair manual should have the information as well.
