Re: Engines with block casting #3955272
The 272 blocks were 396 blocks, so it's not a COPO block. According to my book, MQ is a 396/375 Block out of a Chevy II with a manual transmission. Look for the VIN stamp near the oil filter. ALso the casting date of the block would help. If you can find the VIN stamp, you may make some Nova owner very happy!
Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
