Re: Ford straight 6 identification Sign In

don't have a vin# yet still looking for it, the tag may have been removed some time ago i am hoping when i get the fenders off it i will find it stamped in the frame, its in a 53 f350 4 spd manual trans but im not sure if it is the original engine, i thought they came with the 3 speed trans. on the column but i could be wrong

Shoot! Can't help much on two counts. My older books don't go back quite to 53 and none are for trucks. Hang in there, someone will know,

The 'VIN' number should be on the frame, driver's side, just inside of the LF wheel area.

If it is a Holley,
The number are usually stamped vertically in the metering block which is that section front of the bowl.
