The V.I.N. stamp is 9H524624. "9" 1969 "H" Lorain, OH. plant. Mercurys were built there. First V.I.N. numeral "5" will be a Mercury. The 302 probably came out of a Cougar or Cyclone. The casting date code will probably be between June and September, the stamped assembly date probably August to October, for a vehicle produced around September or October 1968 for the 24624th vehicle off the line for the 1969 model year.
