Engine Block Identification

Hello....I have a 1976 Sport Bronco that came with little info on history. Truck has a 302 and I'm trying to determine if the engine is original (seems to be). There are numbers cast onto the engine under the starter, possibly:

CAM-6015-8(or could be a B). Second number underneath the first; 9-69(or 29).

Can't make them out well.......Any help on identifying any specifics on this engine would be greatly appreciated. I was told that there is no way to cross ref. the casting numbers to Ford part numbers because they are foundry marks.

Thanks for everyone's time.....

CAM could be C8M which may make it a 68 block.

Not sure when each series of blocks started but a 76 would be D6x-xxxx.
