The T0821S is Tonawanda assembly plant August 21st and the 'S' is a 327 power glide.
G2463 is July 24th 1963
The 8782870 is the casting number

Ok Here is my question the 1 is an I also the S is for a 1962 327 but block cast date is 63 could the T082IS code be a 1964 IS 327 instead of an S 327?

I would expect T0802IS not T082IS
Why would a July 24, 63 casting not be used until Aug 64?

I would put a pic on here but I don't see how. I agree with you on the date but the code is T082iS as per pic. i is capital in the code number?

Are you sure somebody didn't restamp the block?
Does the pad look like it was machined and restamped?
The digits line up ?
