010 blocks are good blocks the engine code in the vin # will tell you the original motor.

Available engines in 1970 Chevrolet Nova's
4 Cylinders 2.5L 1BL OHV
6 Cylinders 3.8L 1BL
6 Cylinders 4.1L 1BL OHV
8 Cylinders 5.0L 2BL   this would be a 307 not a 302...
8 Cylinders 5.7L 2BL OHV
8 Cylinders 5.7L 4BL OHV
8 Cylinders 6.5L 4BL OHV
8 Cylinders 6.6L 4BL

planning on restoring it?????    the only major visible difference between the 350 and a 400 is the harmonic damper and the marks on the ends of the heads...  the 400 damper outer ring has a recess.. where the 350 dampers are smooth on the outside..

this may help decoding the vin..
