Ring ford, they should be able to look up the engine number and tell you what it came from. Think you can only seach the VIN online and i'm guessing you dont have that.... But in case you do...

you can search with the engine number, just add the 6fpaaa prefix to the engine number, as all australian fords from early 70's onwards have the same digits for the vin and engine.

a little tip when looking at fords! if the engine number is different to the vin no, the engine has been changed...
