WM is a 1956 year model Falcon 74 made between sept 55 and august 56,367A is the engine coding for a villiers 197cc 8E engine out of a Greeves 20R3,the raised number ending with a C is the casting number for the headstock,the number ending E is the engine serial number that is unique to that particular engine (the 367A preceeding it being the specification code from villiers denoting the customer it was supplied to and manufacturers spec) JH
