      The only thing it tells you is that it is a 289 from a 1960-model car, probably a Hawk, but conceivably from a police marshal or some other special order vehicle. As such, it could have been equipped several different ways, and if it has an oil filter, it is the partial-flow type that is mounted on top of the engine.

        It is probably the original 289 engine in your 1960 Hawk. The build sheet will tell you for sure.

          thanks again guys, got another one....

          if you install a point-less distributor do you still need the ignition coil?

          not sure how these two work together.

              The points (or pointless sensor) make and break the circuit through the primary of the coil. The coil provides the high voltage secondary for the spark plugs.
