Is it possible to get a factory build report on a 79 Ford Ranchero?

Asked by Apr 06, 2017 at 02:25 PM about the 1979 Ford Ranchero

Question type: General

According to the VIN # my truck came with a 302.  The engine that I have is a 5.0 liter HO.  The firing order for the cylinders is the same as a 351.  Is it possible to check to see if the current engine came stock?

The 5.0 is the 302 cubic inch V8. Be sure you are looking at the correct character position of the VIN for the engine code. Before 1981 vehicle identification numbers were not standardized so it may not be the eighth character of the VIN. HTH. -Jim
