Ah, there is the problem. See the other post by the guy with the Boss 351
block. He has an F in the code. He writes:
"I had a Boss 351 car. The VIN of the car was 1F02R123456 (not really the
sequential build number). On the INNER FENDER (NOT the motor) was stamped
1F123456, which was obviously the year, assembly plant, and sequential build
Since F was not used for any 351C engine type, his story has les. So, what
is the real deal? Is it that Ford was not consistant?

Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is
attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing
falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any
refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that
the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys
after this process of grotesque self-deception.- Mark Twain
"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding
of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -
