Well the photo didn't work. Here is what I have C5AE-6015E and above I believe is a date code 6L17.

I think the date would be November 17, 1966 (6L17)

My book says that motor is a 1965 427 Side Oiler. (C5AE-6015-E or H)

I just am giving you what a couple of different books I have say they are.

See Ya,

My vin decodes as the car being built September 18. I am guessing that would have to be 9/18/64 for the 65 model year.
The way I decode the casting numbers on the block it is a 289 built November 17 of 1966 so it could not be original to the car.
Not positive but it would be cool if it was a 427 side oiler. Im just trying to determine what is in the car.
The vin decodes as a 289 A code car as well.

Since neither of them is you, I hope these two guys helped you pull it, and aren't a couple of thieves making off with your engine and tranny? :shock: :lol:

They are a couple of car guys who I trade work with. I'm painting a bronco for the guy by the transmission.

My Cyclone has a 289 T-10 4 speed with a broken aluminum bellhousing. Looks like someone ran it up over a curb and broke the bottom half off the bellhousing #C5DA-6394-A. I searched the part # and found and bought a pristine (per photo) exact replacement. One more part acquired. Now I am needing to find a complete set of 65 taillight lenses which appear to be unobtainum at this time.

I may have some used ones if you'd rather have driver quality & price.

Thanks for the response! The link on that site shows only one side available. I may be reading it wrong.
I would be interested in your driver quality ones if they are available. Can you PM me photos?
Thanks-Douglas--
