Default 1974 F100 Vin code X engine?

I recently purchased a 1974 F100 and the 4th Vin character is an X.
F10XUT*****

I cant find anything that lists an X as an engine code for a F100??

I don't have the truck in my possession yet, its being shipped. The title has this X listing and it shows the state of Washington seal next to it verifying the vin number. Ill see if I can get the driver to snap a pic of the door tag...

I would be very careful - invalid vin on the title could be a real problem.

hope you don't have much money tied up in it

I checked another source no X or a T (6th should be a #)

1. First three characters - F10 - Truck Series Code

F10 - F100 2 Wheel Drive
F11 - F100 4 Wheel Drive
F14 - F150 4 Wheel Drive
F15 - F150 2 Wheel Drive
F25 - F250 2 Wheel Drive
F26 - F250 4 Wheel Drive

2. Fourth character - A - Engine Code

A - 6 cyl - 240cid - 1BBL carb - 1973-74
B - 6 cyl - 300 cid - 1BBL carb - 1973-80
G - V8 - 302cid - 2BBL carb - 1973-80
H - V8 - 351cid - 2BBL carb - 1973-80
Y - V8 - 360cid - 2BBL carb - 1973-76
H - V8 - 390cid - 2BBL carb - 1973-76
M - V8 - 390cid - 4BBL carb - 1974-78
S - V8 - 400cid - 2BBL carb - 1977-80
J - V8 - 460cid - 4BBL carb - 1973-80

3. Fifth character - U - Assembly Plant Code

B - Oakville, Ontario, Canada
C - Ontario, Canada
E - Mahhaw, NJ

K - Kansas City, MO
L - Michigan Truck
N - Norfold, VA
P - Twin Cities, MN
R - San Jose, CA
S - Allen Park, MI

4. Remaining six characters - 100001 - This is a numeric code for the vehicle build sequence. In some cases there could be two letters and four numbers.

Not totally correct. The last 6 characters are a letter followed by 5 numbers, with "T" being valid for a 1974.

Default Whew!

I thought I had a bigger deal on my hands, my dads 1974 has a letter U and then five numbers as the last six.

Maybe they typed it in the wrong location of the vin. Attached is a page from LMC truck. They show an X but in front of the 10 instead of after.
