666 what I'm saying is chevy started building 396-375 horse power  cars in the same time frame as your car and the first few were 4P coded. Being you said it was a race car  most of its life it might have started life as a 396-375. Is the rad. a small block( 21") and do the heater hoses  enter the fire wall behind the head. If so it more than likley is a small block car

..So..?? a 4P..Doesnt necessarily mean its a SMALL BLOCK car..?? if it was built in that time frame..?? Cause if thats TRUE...cause from when i first bought the car.the emblem holes were all covered up with Bondo.....and when i popped the trunk..they had all the emblems in the trunk.......But 1 STOOD OUT....?? the GAS CAP only said.." S S "..with a cable..and not the one I thought it should be the " SS 350 Cap "..?? unless they just replaced that a long time ago...

There are other tell tales of a BB. Doesn't the speedo cable exit the firewall a differant place then SB? And the front springs if they still have their code? Front A-arms? Rear springs? A plum BB would be great in my book.

Frame mounts may tell you. Are the both the same height?

Also, you can look for original black paint on the tailpan.

Is there a  gas line clip on the rear bolt of the right side motor mount stand or is it on the frame next to the stand

...Fuel lines ?? I dont remember seeing any fuel lines on the car......But..?? It appears to have the original tank still in it...maybe if I drop the tank..and see if they cut and left some of the old line on it
