Looks like a 1958 engine as they didn't use spark plug cooling ports until 1959.

Thanks

Yeah, and I'm pretty sure all of those #811 blocks used a rope style rear main seal. (more prone to leaking compared to a regular rubber seal) 

It would be a good engine if you were trying to get the right date code for a 58 Chevy or Pontiac but if you were going to use aftermarket heads, the lack of spark plug cooling holes creates a potential leakage problem.

It's not the most desirable 348 block but here's a link to a stroked #811 block that managed to pump out 650 hp on pump gas...
