Was this info any good? I don't think you can tell an exact year from the engine number, just specification - and perhaps deduce the approx era from that.

The year of the engine may not help in buying parts such as points, it's the model of the distributor that decides that, and it may have been replaced.

The numbers on the block are just casting numbers and won't help much. The engine number is more useful - if it's still there - and from that the GuessWorks link that Nozzle posted should give you information that's close enough for buying parts.

Other than that, post some pictures and we'll try to identify it from those.
