Sunbeam/Hillman engine question

I have acquired an engine but I have no idea what it came from. The valve cover has Sunbeam on it. The engine number is A3307803 with LCX under the number. Indications are it is from a Hillman of some sort??? Anyone have any ideas on how to track this down?
Thanks

Maybe Sunbeam Rapier? A performance version of the Hillman Minx.

Can you post a photo? Alloy or cast iron head? Does the dip stick go into the oil pan or into the block? What type of intake and carbs are on it? All these things are ways to ID the engine.
