Subject says it all. There does not appear to be a place on the VIN plates or chassis stickers for the engine block's serial number on my 1988 NA Supra Targa 5M. I'm trying to decide whether to work on saving what I think is the original engine vs a nice running engine for sale. I prefer having the original engine in it, and will work on that to preserve it as a goal. However, if I could check and perhaps find it's not the original engine, I'd just toss it and buy that
running engine. Not interested in swaps, etc - just looking to end up with a nice stock fun driver.
For instance, many older car will have a paper build sheet hidden under the back seat, or in the trunk under the carpet, etc which has this information.
Thanks in advance.
