Here's a bit of background on my truck

https://c10trucks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2204

Since my parents were divorced I wasn't around my dad much but he told me the truck had an engine from an 80's Oldsmobile (Cutlass?)

He didn't mention anything about swapping the diff but when looking for a gasket, theparts place only showed 10 bolt for my 64 year.

Basically I was wondering if you guys could help identify the engine and if the diff is original to my truck.

Sorry for the noob question :(

Looks to be chevrolet, during the eighties and nineties before Oldsmoble`s demise they were using Chevrolet engines in their passenger cars, probably where he acquired it from. The rear axle looks to be `64 it has the same tracking bar as mine, on the right rear axle tube, back side toward the top will be a set of numbers/letters, you will have to use either steel wool or sandpaper to reveal them, post those numbers here and we will decode it for you...Back to the engine if you can get a look at the back of the block drivers side will be some casting numbers on the area just before the bell housing...
