When I bought my Nova off Craigslist last year, I was told it was an LE9 305 and never gave it a second thought...this is my first "old" car and I just enjoy driving it regardless of the powerplant.

Well, today while at my uncle's house, we decided to run the casting numbers on the block and it turns out my 305 is actually a 57-66' 283 (casting #3849852) :eek: . I'm sure these old motors aren't much more desirable than a 305 boat anchor but it was a nice surprise that it runs as well as it does considering it's age.
