Hi Mike

I am Canadian

Sorry I can't help you with your vin #, but I have pics. for you. Checked everything. Even saw your other ads for same info. I 'll see what I can come up with . I have a friend who goes back a long way & and he eats, sleeps , nothing but old Fords.

I did own a 1952 Ford way back when . It did have a 239 flat head .

After that , I owned a 1956 Meteor Rideau 3 on the tree, 292 T Bird Motor. That was one tough car. Wish I still had it. At the time it was quitefast, and pretty car. Canadian meteors had tri coloured paint jobs, because of side flash.

Could it be someone changed the vin plate along the way ??

Good luck

Later

Ray
