I have a small block V-8 with a casting number of 3932388 and a code of HV on the stamp pad on the front of the block. When I look up the casting number it states it is a 350. However, the HV code indicates a 327, which would be correct? it does have a 327 intake on it, rams horn exhaust and the alternator correct bracket for a 327. Bit confused by the casting number. Any ideas?

1969. Turbo hydromatic with 255 Hp. HV. Suffix,

There should be some block casting dates on the block and the heads under the rocker covers,
