Not original. It's a 302 with an October 30, 1972 casting date.

Can some of you fine gentleman help me decode my 289 engine? From what I researched it looks to be a 70's engine out of a fairlane. This engine is in my 1966 mustang. I was hoping it was going to be the original but its not looking like it from what I can tell.
Like folks said, it's a 302. On the back of the intake china wall parting line there'll be a partial VIN stamped. Post it and we can narrow down where it came from....

70's engine out of a fairlane.
The letter O in D2OE only means that the Fairlane division designed the part. That same part (engine block) was used in any Ford vehicle that received a 302 engine. So you cant't determine what vehicle the engine came out of by that number.
However, if you post the stamped partial VIN in Woodchuck's photo we can tell you which vehicle that it came out of. It doesn't really matter what it came out of because all 302 2V engines were exactly the same.
