When I had the 205 block 2.2 Pinto built for my car I didn't give much thought to that. The cars weren't worth a huge amount and I certainly didn't foresee the stratospheric rise in values that have gone on since!

Understand that your 205 wouldn't have been the original block (20), but don't Pinto's lose their engine stamp when they get decked flush?

I'm not 100% sure on this, hence why I ask the question.

Would be nice to have matching numbers though and I guess some buyers do look for this.

I just assumed your serial numbers were stamped on a machined flat spot on the side of the block like ours. That same number is stamped on the strut top plate as the chassis number and also on the vin plates giving you a matching trio.

They are, and they do. Though the engine number will only be the last two letters of the chassis number followed by the serial number
