Decoding GM Engine Help Needed

Hi I have A engine in my GTO and wanted to see if anyone can help me decode it to see if possible original or not?

Engine code on block on passenger side.

C 446785 WR

I have a 1968 GTO with a manual transmission.

Any Help is appreciated.

Tom, this site should help you: Pontiac Power

In order to tell if it is the original engine, you will need to look at the Block VIN number.

If you're sure of that "WR", then according to the sites I've checked it's not the original engine. In 1968, WR was only used on 350's - and your GTO would have had a 400.

Check the date code (4 characters - 1 alpha followed by 3 numerics, top rear of block, near the distributor hole) - easier to see with a good light and a mirror. The date code will ID the model year. The model year combined with the "WR" will tell us exactly what you've got there.
