    If what I read is correct, appears to be a 1965 250hp 327. I'm not really good with numbers, I just check stuff before I make it worthless to a numbers guy. I don't want to be the guy who decks a block that somebody has been searching for for 20 years.

    Agree. That block was used on 327 engines in 1965 and 1966. In 1965, EA coded engines were 327/250hp for Chevelle. In 1966, EA engines were 327/275hp engines for Chevelle.
