1957 t-bird engine code

Discussion in '1955 - 1966 Classic Ford Thunderbird' started by bonneville, Apr 26, 2017.

  1. I am restoring a 57 bird. Engine block code is c1ae6015-r. I am having trouble identifying this block.
    Any information would be appreciated.
  2. let me preface this by saying that I am not certain of the answer to your question. I do know that on many Ford parts the first digit denotes the decade and the second digit denotes the year. So.... parts with C1 to start off would be for 1961. "B" denotes the '50's (parts for my '55 bird start with "B5"),"C" denotes the '60's , "D" denotes the '70's. (parts for my '73 Mustang started with "D3")
