kinda hard to tell, but it sure looks like a windsor. clevelands have much larger heads. If you have a 302 to compare head size to that will let you know it is a windsor.

yeah, looks like a small block 302 to me, the H in the VIN says it should have a cleveland 2V motor

302 as well, a 351c has a dry intake so the upper hose goes into the engine block not the intake manifold, and heads are a little larger as indicated.

Looks like a 302 to me, the quick way to tell the 302 windsor from the 351 windsor is on the 302 the lower bolt on the thermostat housing is right behind the top of the water pump, on the 351 the same bolt is just above the water pump, about 2 inches higher.
the reason its higher is the 351 has a taller deck height.

the 351 cleveland, which your car (H engine code) originally had has the upper radiator hose going into the block veritically right next to the distributor.

Most definatly a 302 or 289. Nice grab... getting harder to find 351c cars. Find another Cleveland block and your "cool" factor will rise significantly. :)
