The assumption was that "when an engine code on the fender tag is missing, that means the Mopar was manufactured
with the standard engine for that model" and maybe that was also true for the IBM card? Without the fender tag the only
other clue left is the car's 3321x VIN tag. 1962's 3321x is 1962 Plymouth V8 so, as Bill indicated, a poly 318 was the
standard V8 in that 1962 Plymouth.
