Hate to waste space covering old ground but the engine in the '53 Commander coupe that followed me home recently has the following stamping on the block.

V432151

May as well ask about another one sitting here.

V279949

The former appears to be a 1959 59V 259.
The latter would be a 1953 Commander 232.

That is, if the V/8 data page is correct:

BTW, if someone sees errors on that page, please let me know and I will fix it!
