Been trying to figure out if the 390 in my 64 is the original engine. Ran across something that confuses me. The Heads are numbered C1AE 6090A, date stamp is 3H13. Now if I have this right; that says that they are 1961 Galaxie heads, BUT they were manufactured Aug 13 1963. Does this sound right?
Block stamp (I assume that's what it is, behind oil filter) says 3F10. Can't see any other #s on block ....yet. DIF build location code.
Intake #s are C4SE 9425A (I think "S" designates a thunderbird). build date stamp (I assume) above it is 3H9:
Can anyone decipher this any better than I. I'm sure I may have some things screwed up. The head numbers really confuse me (for a 61, built in 63?)
VIN# is; 4G69ZXXXXXX Build Date on door is H29
So may I have an original engine? Or just a conglomeration of early 60s parts?
