Engine Numbers / VIN
#1
I saw some old threads on this topic, but thought this was interesting. I was able to get a picture of the stamping on the back of the 351 in my '72 convertible. The numbers in my VIN are 222483. The number on the block is 222348. I figure the guy had the right numbers and just transposed them in the stamp that day in 1972. The car has never been apart and is all original, so you never know. Also amazing how sloppy/shaky the stamping is.[Image: IMAG2444.jpg]

 They were hand stamped as far as I know, so you got a dyslexic worker that day!! BUT there would likely be another engine out there with the same number on it. Hmmm!
