What do I have? This engine was in a 68 6cyl parts car that was converted to an 8. PO said it is a 302.

You have one of those factory oddities, this block according to Bob Mannels book on the Ford small block was used only for 68 289 production, although it will be marked under the intake as a 302 block.It was cast at Windsor Ontario foundary after the supply of 289 blocks ran out and more production was needed, they substituted the already prepared 302 block casting to finish out 289 production, while Cleveland plant concentrated on 302 production for 68, in 69 the Windsor plant concentrated on new 351 production, therefore I guess they never resumed using the C8 block.I think the other numbers you have listed are just the casting date, looks like December 7, 1967.The motor should be a 289, but that doesn't mean someone over the years hasn't rebuilt it and used the 302 crank and rods, the block can be rebuilt either way.

1967 S code GT Deluxe Coupe 65B
1966 Convertible 76B 289 4 speed
