Hi I appreciate all you CarGurus guys and all your
answers helping everybody every day! Today I have
a question for you I have a 1969 Ford LTD with a
429 motor I believe it's what I was told when
buying it? I just bought it recently,  on the side of
the front fender the car has an engine size # inside
the trim panel telling everyone it's a 390 so I'm not
sure what kind of engine I have in the car is there a
way you could find numbers on the engine maybe
stamped on the engine to find out what type of
engine I have whether it's a 429 or 390 anybody out
