In what way did he mean "Special"??? Factory XW V8 Utes wer'nt that uncommon were they ??? As for the Part Number...The first digit should be a "C" and not a "G". The Number seems to be the Casting Number off the Inlet Manifold of a 1968 Ford Engine???
The manifold part number is specific to the manifold, its got nothing to do with the engine number, thats located on the drivers side front side of the block.
Its getting a bit tiring all this "special build by Ford" stuff, guys, just because a car has a V8 engine and some GT parts doesn't mean Ford put them there at the Factory.
Ill say it again, anything optioned on a Falcon has an option code, they don't just randomly pluck parts on the line and say "hey lets put a GT motor in this one" or "a sunroof in this one" Get a letter from Ford listing the codes for your car.
Anything special will be listed there otherwise someone else fitted it at some time in its life..
