casting numbers for a 1965 289

Evening all, bought a 1965 Mustang and was told this was the original 289 that had been rebuilt, however starting to question that. The casting number above the starter reads DZOE-6015-AB and the date code on the block below the distributor reads 3D17Y. These don't seem to ad up, the wife thinks its a 302 I believe it is a 289 from my research but not original to the 1965 Mustang that we bought.
Whatever info you can provide would be grateful. Thanks in advance.

Hmmm.... I'm assuming it's a 70's block because it starts with a "d" but the next character should be a number indicating the exact year. In all honesty I wouldn't worry about it. Unless it's a factory 289 hipo or something special it really doesn't affect the value. I went through the same on mine. And for 65 there's no way to know if it's the original block. The 289 used the same casting number for awhile.

I believe the stamping below the dist. Should match the last numbers in the VIN, and they didn't do that untill '68

Thanks for the reply BA68. The wife was worried about value, this is our first attempt and did not do enough research prior to buying. We are learning a lot. Need to get an idea of its true worth. Posted some pics in my album.
