Block Casting

I was working on my car today and noticed this casting http://1969z28.com/block.html . When I bought the car I was told the engine was a 454 originally from a 1970 Chevelle which I really haven't been able to prove one way or another.

Anyway, has anyone seen this casting before, any idea if it can tell me what generation 454 I have?

Thanks for the help!

Re: Block Casting

Please post back the letters that should be at the end of the long VIN number string that's on the deck boss that's above the pass side top water pump bolt and we will try to decode what it started out life as!!

Re: Block Casting

Drew,
There should be a longer casting number near where the one you posted is. Maybe on the other side of the block. All most all big blocks had that "HiPerf" cast in them.
