Welcome to the forum......

Well, it will be one of these. Check the block casting number located by the #8 cylinder next to the firewall. Also, check the date code by the distributor. Because '65/'66 had the same casting # as well as '68/'69. The date code will look something like d105.

That's the engine unit number which would be on the PHS doc. That helps to verify it's the correct engine that came with that car IF it's on your PHS. You need to check the other numbers I mentioned to determine what the engine actually is, unless you have the PHS and the engine unit # does match the doc, then your doc will tell you all the info for the engine...
