two questions
can you tell me where to find the stamped engine number that includes the
partial VIN? A detailed answer with a picture would be appreciated.
The cast engine number is 3955287GMT. B22 – 71 is also there. What does

This number 3955287 I find for 1970-71 Q-jet intake that fits 402/454. The earliest 454 block casting number I find is for 1973 to 1985 454 that went into cars, which is 361956 block casting number. I don't know exactly were to find the casting number, but usually they are on the side of the block, or right behind the distributor along the top of the bell housing.
