I have a 72 Commando half cab with the original in-line six cylinder engine. But which engine? The 258 or the 232?

I suspect it's the 232, but would be grateful if one of you experts could tell me how to tell for sure.

If you are sure it is the original engine, you can look at the VIN number. For the 72's (and 73's), the last letter, which is just before the 5 digit serial number, is the engine code.

A=258 reg
B=258 l/c
E=232 reg
F=232 l/c
also H=304 V-8

I have no idea what l/c means, but that's what is in my book.

Also,my book says the automatics did not come with 232's - only 258's and 304's.
