I picked up a 351C 4V recently and I am curious what kind of car it came out of. While searching for numbers on the engine I found these stamped onto the rear surface of the left head.

0H127648

The head has a casting date code of 9L22 and is a D0AE-J. At first I thought this might be a partial vin# but the H would indicate a 2V engine and based on the port and valve dimensions, I know this is a 4V. The 0H12 could be the assembly date which could be realistic based on the casting date. Any idea's what the 7648 is? could it be part of the vin#?

From the engine tag I get

351C 70-1
25 F609G


Are there any other numbers I could find that would help me figure out what car this came from?

Thanks,
Perry

The first two characters in these partial VINs maps to the first two characters of the car's VIN; the "H" in this case is the assembly plant code in a VIN of 0Hxxx127648. I don't know what "H" stands for off the top of my head, but since it's not an "F", "R", or "T" the engine wasn't originally installed in a 1970 Mustang.

It could be from a Torino. They definately used the 351C that year. I alway's liked those early Torino's. I remember crusin in my cousin's 69 GT fastback back in the early 80's. The rear window seemed like it was a mile long.
