Guy had it advertised as a 440. I know it ain't, but which is it?

Crawl underneath. The engine size is cast into the side of the block. Yes probably a 360.

Nope, that is not a Thermoquad. might not even be a 4bbl of any kind. Pics are too blurry to tell but the dead giveaway that it's not a B/RB is the distributor position. The seller is either clueless or trying to scam someone.

FIL had a Winnebago Brave (25 footer iirc) that had a 318 in it with 4.10 gears. It would do every bit of 60 and that's about it lol

I had a ‘79 W200 Club Cab Power Wagon, with the 360 2bbl. It sure didn’t have much power.:(

Had a 79 D300 Adventurer SE Club Cab long bed single wheel years back with a 360 but it got an intake, 600 Holley and headers and it woke up. Having 4.10 gears with a granny gear box didn't hurt performance either....but 8 mpg loaded or not! lol

I'm 100 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico and communications here ain't all that. And I'm trying to view this with my phone. And I'm asking because I don't know.
For sure it is a small block. The 360 took that series Holley 2 barrel.

Another vote for 360 2bbl. Looks pretty much like the ones my dad's big-arsed Plymouth
Voyager commuter vans had back in the late 70's.
PITA to work on in a van, BTW.
