Yes, I assume. And you know that since about 2000 (I forget when, maybe earlier) cars have the VIN all over them! We are talking fenders, hoods, bumper reinforcements, we are talking most all bolt on body parts! Go out and check a late model car, look at the jamb of the front fenders and such you will see a non transferable sticker with the VIN on it.Thank you, Brian. I can't believe the foundry put the number on the block when it was cast, it must have been done at the assembly plants when they received the engines.
