On the passenger side of the engine (should be the 216 cid), back just to the rear of the distributor, there will be a boss w/a code stamped on it. If your engine is a 1950, the code will start w/the letter"H".

IIRC, there weren't partial VIN numbers like was done later on. The numbers after the letters are the sequence number.

Get some photos up!!
