Need help finding Vin # on 326 engine .

I have a 1964 Pontiac Tempest Custom , 326 backed by a 4spd Muncie. Factory ordered this way , PHS docs to verify . I have confirmed the 4spd muncie is the original matching #'s .However I am having trouble finding the stamped vin # on the engine block . Where would the vin be stamped on the engine ?

64 only has a casting number, date code and the engine letter code, Pontiac didn't stamp the VIN on the block until mid year 67.

That comes back to a 64 326, what is the letter code on the front of the block just under the passenger side head?

925 is a 250hp 2bbl carb engine with a manual transmission. 226845 was the engine unit number and they didn't record that number on the PHS billing record until early 67.
