Okay haven’t seen this stamping pattern before. Any help? Looking at buying it but want to be sure of what it is. Supposedly it was originally from a 69 Coronet and was a six pack but is now in a truck. Casting number is correct for a 69 440 (2536430, date looks to be 2-14-69) but the stamping doesn’t say “HP” and what is the big “T”? or the other letters? Pics included, please help!

T - Truck 440

A .020 oversize cylinder bores

I think the C is stamped upside down

T = truck
Six Pack engine would be stamped "HP", and would be painted orange rather than turquoise.

Thanks everyone for confirming my suspicion (that this wasn’t a 440 HP)!

And, likely, have a VIN stamped other passenger's side of the block.
I asked for that, doesn’t look like it had a VIN stamped on the other side. At least I couldn’t see from the pic. I wondered since it wasn’t that orange/red color and didn’t have the HP stamped nor the years letter code (E in the case of what I’m looking for).
