Ive been posted this message but it seems to be in other "galaxy"...

A friend of mine are always looking an engine for my stang.

He saw an LTD and copy that numbers from th LTD ID card:

VIN: FIN64H101858F

Engine number: JN64H101858


Anyone can decode it?

Regards,
Mariano

In '71 all the Ford cars sold in the US had a VIN that began with a 1 to indicate the model year. Assuming the F at the beginning and end of this VIN is because of being in Argentina and the rest of the VIN is a normal Ford number, then you would have H for the engine code which = a 351 2V engine. The 351 could be either a windsor or cleveland, the engine code is the same for both.

Thanks Rickmaan.

My friend does´nt know if teh car is Brazilian, Mexican or Canadian LTD, Argie LTD was the same Fairlane 68 4door for 12 years with the old Y block.

I though the H was for 302, but I will try to verify the valve covers bolt pattern.

Thanks aganin for your answer,
Mariano

I think that F at the beginning and end is on all 71-73 VIN plates. I seem to remember my 73 coupe having them in more of a "fancy" font compared to the actual VIN.

I just looked at a 70 VIN plate I have and it has the fancy F at the beginning and end. It is not part of the VIN.
