67 shelby mustang GT500 engine ID

It is my understanding that the 428 in the GT 500 did not receive a VIN# stamp, but was date stamped. Assuming that to be correct, any one happen to know the exact location of the date stamp?

My understanding is that ALL high performance engines were stamped with the complete VIN, even in '67. You may want to check on the driver's side bank at the rear of the block for a flat pad which MAY have a partial VIN stamped on it. Also possible is a partial VIN stamp on the back of the driver's side cylinder head. The partial VIN stamping was required for the '68 model year so it may or may not be present. However, if you have a '68 or later partial VIN you'll know the engine was not original. If you're lucky, maybe you'll find an engine assembly stamp somewhere, but I doubt it.


What, me worry?

I have read the same about all "special" engines being stamped.
