GM Photostore indicates it is my alma mater, Chevrolet Flint Assembly (Truck plant), circa 1970.

The fact that it is a mixture of big block and small block indicates a final assembly location, rather than engine assembly (therefore the engines are coming out of the racks and onto the line, not vice versa).

The plants in Flint, Pontiac and other areas in SE Michigan are close to "headquarters" which makes photographic trips easier.
