9 = 1969
A = Atlanta Assembly Plant
48 = Ranchero GT
F = 302 2V 9.5:1 Compression Ratio 210 HP @ 4400 RPM
259475 = Sequential body number of the Torino Line Built at Atlanta

No idea about the 428 Non-Ram Air, you probably adjusted your float out of spec to be getting fuel out the top.

Yes, you could have a different glove box door or parts there, a lot of things get moved around from one to another over the years. Good luck with your ride!
