    Did any 62 model Rancheros even come with the 223-6 cylinder engine? If so, how many (or does anyone even know)? According to the VIN breakdown at the top of this section, mine had one. It has the "V" engine code.

    The Vin decoder does not lie LOL. Yes they did come with that engine if you are indeed reading the correct engine Letter from the Vin.

    I've honestly never heard of that engine in a Ranchero. Would that engine be specific to a certain package (i.e.: Ranchero Deluxe, etc.)?

    I'll have to see if the door tag is still there or not. My grandfather replaced alot of parts when he had it, so I don't if it is. I know the original engine is long gone.

    I believe Marti Reports start at 65 or 66 and go to 73. He might have changed it but the last time I checked he would not be able to decode your car.
