1993 F250 Diesel - Engine Question - VIn Number

Hello folks. I finally found the truck for me, I think.

When I finally got the VIN number though, it didn't give me the expected results within the FORD Vin Decoder.

The VIN is:

2FTHF26C3PCB30257

If you look at :
https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp

It shows the engine type as "C" - 11.1 L / 6 Cyl.
Is this an error? If not, what engine was this?

Can anyone shed any light onto this for me? I really appreciate it as I'm trying to pick it up Sunday if it is in fact a good deal.

Thanks,
BD

The truck was dealer serviced for the first 130k and has had a good deal of work recently, including new turbo, clutch, pressure plate, warn hubs, axle seals....
