Help ID 3932386, but no Vin or numbers on pad

Looks like it could have been a 302, 327 or 350, but the pad is clear from the machine work. Any other clues to tell what motor this was originally?

4 bolt mains would be 302 or 350. Check the partial VIN, if it is by the oil filter. Maybe you will get lucky with someone's DZ engine.

Is it a short block, long block or complete motor? Sometimes the head casting numbers or dates can help tip you off but only if you think it might all be original stuff. You know how those crazy red-necks like to swap things around!

Short block only, not sure I understand about a partial Vin near the oil filter. Where would that be, I don't see any place with stampings.

Nothing from the other casting numbers? At least is this a Camaro block or just a Chevy in general?
