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.

BARBADOS, CYPRUS, FIJI, GUYANA, HONG KONG, JAMAICA, MALAYSIA, MALAWI, MALTA, NIGERIA, PAKISTAN, PAPUA, SEYCHELLES, SOUTH AFRICA, SUDAN - (KU)
