I have a 1967 Fairlane 500. It has an early 80's 302 in it now, but I was wondering what the original engine would have been. It has one 289 fender badge and the last owner said he took a windsor out of it. This is where my dilima begins. I have never heard of a windsor in anything from 1967, and the last owner was a little backwards, but it has an H code in the vin. I know in 1970 that the H was for the windsor but, the references I have do not list an H code at all for this car. Whats up? The full vin is 7K35H101338 any help would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks
I needed that. Someone had suggested that this particular 390 had about 10.5 to 1 compression, is there any truth to that?

I am not a Fairlane guru but,Ford did make a 390 premium fuel 2V engine.The book just said 2V with no foot notes or Premium fuel designation.This engine is usually refered to as an "X" code..
Need some help from a Fairlane guy here.I'll go back into the books tomorrow..

The Woodys Fairlane site http://www.woodyg.com/fairlane is very good for Fairlane info. You can try http://www.woodyg.com/fairlane/finfo/fespechart2.html , look for 390 2V. You can also look at www.fordfe.com.

just my 2 cents

"X" code will be a 4v 390 but not the "S" code as found in a GT. "H" code has the same heads and piston configuration as a 390GT "S" code engine.
