All I can say is Wow!  There is so much non-stock stuff on this engine that I can't picture how it would run.  There is no visible air cooling.  The intake manifold looks like it was designed by a plumber.  The numbers are consistent with an early 70's 1600 but with everything else that has been done to the engine I would say that all bets are off.  Do you plan to make it work in a Beetle?

I'm hoping to rebuild and make it work in the bug, I am completely restoring it from the floor pans up, lol.
Do you think it is possible bf has already started to take it apart and everything seems to be in good shape as far as the inside, I can't seem to find a nice pick of a bus motor to compare, if you know of any can you send them my way. Thanks for the help

Your playing with a modified type 3 engine.. My bet it was fuel injected.

You can convert it to up right  type 1 very easy.

What you have is definitely a pancake(type3 or LM bus type4) engine and not a upright(Bug or EM bus) The flywheel mounting is one thing that throws me though... does it mount with dowel pins and the gland nut or does it mount up to that rather rusty looking flange with the bolt pattern around it. Even if this thing is a standard 1600 engine  you will have to loose the starter on the top (it's on the transmission in your Bug) and this will leave a BIG hole open to the flywheel and clutch. This will also make it next to impossible to seal the engine compartment from hot air coming in from under the car which will prove to be a major problem. If you are stuck with this thing and it proves to be a 1600 case then go ahead and use the internal parts that your bf(should read local machine shop) finds reusable but at least go out and find a rebuild-able engine case that has not been modified like this one has. Also ALL of the tin work-cooling system, intake and charging system on this engine will be unusable... so it is time to start looking for this also.
