    Just pick the one with the best CONDITION!
    That's what I plan to do. Supposedly the '55 was rebuilt 35k ago according to the previous owner. It was disassembled when I got it.

    The first one is a 259 from a 60 lark, the second is a 259 from a 55 commander

    The number that is stated on that flat spot is the engine serial number .
    there is another number at the very back ( passenger side that will tell you the month , day and year the block was casted .
