Can anyone identify these casting numbers, please? C8AE 6090 R

I know they are '68, but I'm having trouble with the rest. What does the "R" stand for?

Welcome, GT.

I know they are not GT heads. The R is just a revision code. It IDs which version of the head it is.

'70 Mustang Mach 1 - '72 Mustang Sprint - '94 F-150

Are you sure that casting number is right?My book lists a C8AE 6090 J that is a 427 low riser from a 68 fairlane.Or a C6OE 6090 R that is a 68 Mercury 390 4-V head.Can't seem to find your exact numbers.How about any date codes?
