Hi moronthree! Locate the data plate on your T-Bird. The first letter in teh serial number indicates the engine. On the 1957s a "C" indicates the 292, everything else is a 312. Here's the link to a page that will help you decode the rest of the data plate. Hope that helps. Good luck! http://www.tbird.org/DataPlate/cdata.htm
