    Looking for some insight into this block, it's got a C8OE-6015A casting, with 302 in the lifter valley, a 1/4/68
    date code and a "K" VIN. Any info would be appreciated.

    In 1968 the 302's would have an "F" or a "J" ?????

    That's what's weird. The caps are regular, not the wider ones like on a Mexican block.

    Isn't the K code the very rare only 500 made nascar motor? I was just reading up on engine codes last night...I'll check my books when I get home from work so that I can back up what I'm saying lol.

    The K you see in the partial VIN identifies the assembly plant for the car in which the block was originally installed. K = Kansas City. I found the answer in another forum.
