I am trying to sell the 351W and C4 from the 75 on CL. A guy who was interested in it asked me for the block casting number. Where will I find it? It is a circa 1975 block (original to the car).

It is on the passenger side rear of the block above the starter motor.

Notice how there is a freeze plug to the left side of it.

Thank you guys. The engine is covered in 30 years of grease and oil buildup, so I have to dig for whatever I want to look at.
