Thanks everyone for your input. Just a few more things to do like pull the water distribution tube before I start the car.
How many of you acquired an auto without hearing it run? Well, in this case I may be a glutton for punishment.

Questions on the 327

I’m at a loss and I hope that some of you can suggest answers.
Years ago I was told by an old timer that placing a 288ci head on a 327 will up the compression ratio which must be true according to some of the blogs I’ve read on this site support his theory.
I acquired a 1949-50 Deluxe Eight Touring with three speed and overdrive from the original owner whose sir-name is Packard. She is in her late 90’s and does not remember many things about the car. The paperwork that came with the car gives me the impression that it was restored around 2010 at which time it was a show winner in a local car show. It’s a beautiful car, but by no means a show car. This is the third Packard that I have owned and realize that they are not hot rods, but I do enjoy a little extra umph (passing) on the highway as Idaho has a lot of busy two lane highways with 65 MPH speed limits.
I have questions:
1. PI states that it is a 1949 (2362-5) but it is titled as a 1950. Any suggestions as to why?
2. Car has been reengined with a 1954 327ci (M300190) 5 main bearing power plant. It does sport a 288ci head with no other markings and a two barrel Carter WGD728 carb. Now I’m assuming that the carburation on this 327ci engine was a four barrel from the factory??
3. Is it worthwhile to look for a four-barrel manifold and carb and correct sized filter?
4. Is the engine being choked down with the size of the single exhaust?
5. Can anyone tell me what the compression ratio is as it is presently set up?
Thanking you in advance for all of your imput……
