Buying a Used car engine for aircraft use

Engine VIN: 3HGGK5H51FM717214

This is what I found when I researched the engine VIN number on this Viking 130 (a converted 2015 Honda 1.5L L4 DOHC 16V i-VTEC).

Vehicle Information:
VIN: 3HGGK5H51FM717214
1.5L L4 DIR DOHC 16V

Pictured below is an example of the car. The actual car was black in color.

The car was purchased as a POV in September of 2014 from Crown Honda in Pinellas Park, FL. The car's title number by Florida Motor Vehicle Dept in Saint Petersburg, FL was 0116310064. It was owned and well maintained in Florida for 2 years 1 month and driven 11,750 miles until it was involved in an accident on October 24, 2016 resulting in a reported total loss. The accident was with another vehicle in which the left front of the car was primarily damaged leaving the car disabled and requiring tow. The front airbag deployed.

What happens next is the magic of Viking Aircraft Engines
