Default How to decode VIN - Fleetwood / Brougham D'elegance

Any bright soul out there capable of decoding the following cases?













All the pictures have been taken by me
All the editing done by myself as well.


Intention is to fully identify the vehicle (year of the vehicle, engine cc, etc etc)







As the engine has been dropped it will be fully rebuilt, so crucial information is needed before anything gets done.

Id be much appreciated if anyone could look at these pictures and leave comments either here or send me a message...

Cheers everyone!

Best I can figure out is a 1987 Cadillac Brougham 4Dr Sedan D platform with the 5.0 4bbl

1 - U.S.
G - GM
6 - Cadillac
DW - Brougham
5 - 4 dr. sedan
1 - manual belts
Y - 5.0L 4bbl
3 - check digit
H - 1987
9 - Detroit
7599xx - sequence number

My dad had a 1986 Brougham with the 5.0L; he claimed it was the slowest car he ever owned. I looked into swapping a 5.7L for the 5.0L, but it got sold first.

43bike,

Many thanks for your help and clarification on this matter greatly appreciated.

Below more pictures regarding this engine block.
IF anyone can add even more info that would be great!












And bike43 regarding the poor power perfomance of this engine I can tell you my idea will be to master rebuild this engine with performance parts, and Im not talking about "stickers" or wings at the back of the car or "performance" exhausts or anything external...lol no not that.

I talking about new performance pistons, tuned and rebalanced crankshaft, new performance camshaft and others...all done within responsible numbers and changes that the engine can take.

Many thanks
