I recently acquired an original 69 Fairlane/Torino/Stang scoop. I THINK it came from a Torino GT, but the part number is throwing me off. It's the one with the grille in the front, and the turn signals in the back. I have the complete thing!

Part numbers on the underside:
C9OB-16C664
C9OB-16056
C9ZB-16C664
C9ZB-16056

What I know so far, is the C9 is 1969, "O" is Fairlane/Torino, "Z" is stang. "B" is body part.

What's throwing me off, is ALL the hood scoop part number's I've found all end in "Z" which is service part. And I haven't found either one of my actual suffixes (16C664, and/or 16056) ANYWHERE.

Does anyone know what this sucker is off of, or where I can find out? I had one just like it on my 1979 F150 4X4 and it looked really good on the truck, but I seriously doubt this one will find it's way on my Fairlane, so I'd really like to know exactly what it is for the swap meets!

Thanks in advance guys!!!

Wonder if it shares some parts with the scoop off the 1967-8 Fairlane and Mustang hoods? These also had rear facing turn signals.

All 4 of those numbers are molded right into the scoop.

I found out why mine has a "B" body, instead of a "Z" service. Evidently only the ones installed at the factory (or dealers) had the "B" becuase they were original equip. Anything shipped to a Ford Parts dept. had the "Z" because it was then considered a service part.

But why can't I find my number anywhere?
