    Default Way to check if 2400 is original motor

    My boss just bought this car and brought it into our body shop. So I have to do all the research on it. Love these cars we have now had two in the shop. Boss used to rebuild z and 510's 20 years ago. Any way is there any way for me to figure out if the motor in our car is original. I looked all over the motor but cannot seem to find amy numbers. Is there a tag on the motor that i am not seeing? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    The engine number on the strut tower ID plate should match the engine number stamped on the block right after the L24-. It is stamped on the right side near the oil filter

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.
