Yes, that's where it is.
It's inside the cab, on a plate mounted to the top of the dash. You have to look thru windshield to see it.

I think he may be confusing VIN with block casting numbers

Sprry, but Imīm talking about the engine number, not the code no the VIN. I hve a pair of 302, it has a plain area (or plain boss, donīt know the correct term in english) to identify that block.

V6 has some similar area where some numbers on fabrication plant could be stamped?

Thanks for your answers,
Mariano
