Check for the small steel plate on the firewall under the hood above where the steering shaft comes through the firewall. Or located on inner fenders above the wheel. The VIN number is not on the engine block, only engine serial number is on the engine block.

The vin plate on my 56 is on the winshield pillar when you open the driver door. Also there is a tag on the passenger side of the firewall above the battery with some information
