I have seen several references here about the VIN on the engine matching the car and other similar references. I have never seen a VIN on a Ford engine. In one instance I asked about where the person was seeing this VIN number and took the response to my garage where I looked at 3 blocks and found no hint of a VIN in the area mentioned or anywhere else on the block. My understanding for the last several decades is that Ford did not stamp VINs on the engines. So what am I missing here? Is this something with later model engines?
