Smile 73 Ranchero

I just purchased a 1973 Ranchero. VIN is 3A47Q246992. The Q tells me that it should be a 351 c Cobra Jet. I know it is a 351 C. and the previous owner says as far as he knows it has the original drive train. I'm wondering where I would find the engine number to prove this. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 73 Ranchero

According to the part number book I have, the casting number you want to see on the block is D2AE-CA.

You can also check the head casting numbers. You want to see D3ZE-AA for a 73 CJ.
