I recently bought this el camino 79. It was
sitting in a drive way for about 2 months on
a neighbors drive way and i finally convinced
him to sell it to me and he doesnt know

engine without guessing. so now it anyone

That looks like a 350 cubic inch. To be sure you can write down the engine numbers and look it up on this sight....http://outintheshop.com/faq/casting/castings2.html

The only thing I could really identify on the engine is " Edelbrock " but thanks. maybe I'm not looking hard enough and the right places

The engine number is stamped on the engine block. Your looking for the block number.
