1966 Bel Air engine code

Hi guys. I went to look at a 66 Belair today with my son. Got a few numbers, but didn't get the trim tag info, so I'll need to go back and get a pic of it later.
I did see DC for the paint and the build date is 11A, I just didn't get the rest.

Engine suffix is T1027GF. Looking at the suffix codes on-line I noticed GF and GT as 283, 195hp, 285 torgue, powerglide, and 2BC, no other info listed. What is the difference between the 2 engines? Anything? I'm thinking the engine is original. Heads have the pointed peak on top of a rectangular box, so I'm thinking powerpack heads? Probably smallish valves.

VIN is 156696Y120334. I have the VIN decoded as a V8 Belair 4 door post sedan built in Wilmington De.

I'm gonna go back maybe tomorrow and take some pics. It looks pretty solid and may have been garage kept. No rust thru on any of the panels where you would think and it has what looks like one repaint, really old too. Asking price is $5000.00.
