Ford Europe VIN Decoder

I see that European Fords don't have an engine code in the VIN, so my earlier response was incorrect. There is no international standard for VINs. On US Fords, there is an engine code in the VIN. Apparently, on European Fords the VIN Plate Key Card is what you have to find. It might be in a door, or behind the glove box- who knows. At least this link above will show you what it looks like. I don't even know if it's a sticker or a stamped metal plate.
Be eclectic.
