Alum oil pan?

Greetings; I am new here.
I have 2 old aftermarket items that I would like to use on my Olds 215 project. One is a cast Alum oil pan; bolt pattern is for a BOP and the seller told me it is for marine application. The only casting marks is "788 63" and I am not sure how rare this pan is? If so (rare) I wish not to cut it and re-weld pan in order provide the clearance for the front suspension. D&D could not ID it and so if someone has a clue what this is; e.g. who made it? This holds (about) 6-qts and the other pan is from a 3.9 for comparison.

Thanks, Vince.
