534 or 330?

I have found a 1965 f500 and am considering buying it. The guy that ownes it says it has a 330 in it which was available in 1965. The vin for this truck is f50r673096 and according to my book it says it is a 534. I have done a little research on the 534 and I have found it to be somewhat undesireable. Is there a way to tell the difference between a 330 and a 534? Thanks for your help.

I would say it's pretty much certain that truck has a 330 if it's the original engine. The 534 was in the 850 and 900 series trucks.

I think you are probably right. I still can't make since out of the vin saying its a 534. I don't know if the vin is on the door on 65s or not but I was thinking that maybe the door was changed at some point. I would still like to know if there is a way to tell between a 534 and 330 though.

thanks

The 330 is a member of the 'FT' family. It's a lot like a 361 or 390 in appearance. The intake manifold goes under the valve covers if you look closely. The Super Duty 534 is a huge engine. Much bigger than any V-8 you would see in a car or pickup truck. Also, I think all the 330's had 2bbl. Holley carburetors. The 534 had a Holley 4bbl..
