Calling Classic Ford Engine Gurus: Help identify this block

Recommended Posts

We're cleaning out Grandma's garage and trying to figure out what to do with Dad's old engines. He feels very confident this is an old Ford motor from 1958, but he can't remember any other details. 

 

Anyone able to identify this one? He doesn't remember what car it came out of...

 

Thanks!

That is a Ford "FE" engine, most likely from 1958 or 1959. It should be 332 or 352 cubic inches. The thermostat neck suggests it isn't any newer (1960 or 61 would have had a surge tank there instead of a thermostat neck, so would a Thunderbird all the way back to 58).

Thank you, sir. Are there casting marks or numbers we can look for on the block or heads to help identify it? Would the VIN be stamped anywhere?
