Yeah, you're right. I didn't think of that.

When I tried to enter the VIN, I keep getting invalid number. It also may be my vision on some of the digits in that image.

It could also have been the previous owner swapped a F20 series engine into it.

I'm thinking it's an export car, so your decoder "knows" that it isn't a US-spec VIN.

JDM Accords were CF3, 4, 5; but I didn't find "CF9". Usually the CF would identify the body structure, and the last digit was stuff like trim level and/or engine. 1998 USDM Accords were CG.

There was this Export Service Bulletin which shows the 1HGCF9; so, you're probably right Jim.

High trim levels (like EX) can still have smaller-displacement engines in say UK, Europe, or Japan. Even today as stock from the showroom.
