    I will be assisting a friend in restoring a 56 Mark II he resently purchased. Probably start sometime in March upon my return from Florida. Serial is 56C01530. Info from data plate in left door jam. Where should I look for other numbers? He can I trace previous owners?

    Typo: I meant to say how can I trace previous owners?

    I thought I was a sponsoring member for at least a month.
    I have an update on 1530. I found a casting number on top and rear of the engine; ECU6015A. Another number stamped on top rear between the diistributor and the throttle return spring bracket is 544. I found a number 3 stamped on the engine under the throttle return spring bracket. I have no idea why somebody painted the engine blue, but I'm optimistic that the engine is correct and original. You guys are the experts. What is your opinion?

    1524 has engine # 538, so your engine is original to you car.

    Since there aren't any records of engine numbers, we use a "Rule of Thumb" on the forum. Take the last four of your VIN (1530) and subtract the stamped engine numbers (544); 1530 minus 544 equals 986. Your variance of 986 is in the acceptable "Rule of Thumb" range of 982 to 989. I agree with Nick that your engine is original to your car.
