The engine is not the original engine. The man that sold the car to my dad said the engine is a 427 out of a Mustang. My dad thinks it's a 460. He is going to replace the engine. Another person is interested in buying the current engine if it is a 427. We can't find the serial number on the block. Where is the serial number located?

A genuine 427 engine is very valuable.
First, you must determine if it's an FE series engine (this engine is entirely different from a 460).
More than likely if it came from a Mustang, it's either the 390 or the 428 (427's were never factory optioned in the Mustang.)
