Most HT 350 engines are Tonawanda 3932388. The Tonawanda foundry appears to have cast 3932388 for 4” bore use in the 1969 model year before all foundries switched to 010 blocks (probably in line with the GM restructure later in 1969). The highest horsepower SBC engine Tonawanda produced was the 300hp L48 (manual HT 350) so 3932388 was used for the following in 1969 model year passenger:

327 210hp (Camaro)
327 235hp (Chevrolet)
350 245hp L65
350 255hp LM1
350 300hp L48.

This is for engines Tonawanda machined and assembled. It is possible the Tonawanda 388 castings ended up being machined and used at the Flint V8 plant especially in 1969 model year (strike plagued year), which means they may have also appeared in:

302 290hp Z28
350 350hp L46
350 370hp LT1

(these all used 2.02/1.6 Fuelies which only the Flint V8 plant machined).
