You have a McKinnon Foundries LS-9 350 from a mid to late 70's Truck. You will need to find and check the casting date to make a better quess as to which year unless you can find the partial VIN and decode it for application.
These are usually good 4-bolt bolts for mild performance builds depending on the past use and repairs to the motor.
Most of the heads used on these motors are junk for reuse on a performance motor. They are also very prone to cracking even in normal use.

Hope some of this helps

High Alloy blocks are not "rare" - they are very common in HD/truck/marine use...
Standard high production passenger blocks do not need 'exotic' alloys to survive and give good service life.
