Here is some 6 cyl., 64-1/2 info.  Dad picked this up on April 18,1964 in Bristow, OK

Thank you for posting! That C4ZE-8005-C1 is one rare radiator! I'm adding to reference ID chart now.

I will add that the car was in a front accident in 1967 or so, but I don't believe the radiator was damaged.  I think that's the original...as best as I can tell.

Autolite,

Don't want to hijack your thread, but need groups opinion about this radiator. I uncovered it with the rest of my Hi Po parts. Has a couple of tags that I believe are radiator repair shop tags. They used them years ago to id customers radiators. Also wantwant some feed back on weather this radiator would be appropriate for an April 65 Hi Po.
Thanks

Strange I have a radiator also Stamped 4FG

I have always thought, W-MO stood for Whittier-Modine and not Western-Modine.
Never get too old to learn something new. Great information, thanks.

Just to add another example to the mix, here are the numbers from a factory original Dearborn, January '65, 6 cyl/auto, no air, radiator.

Is "DEP" stamped on the strap/rail? Normally its before the "C4ZE" and I don't see it visible in those photos.

I'll double check that for you.

Agree, something fishy with that one.

Thanks for posting. I've heard both and want to get to bottom of what is correct. I re-inquired on history with Modine and I received this correspondence today:

"Some of the other retired folks I talked to speculated that the W stands for our Whittier, California plant, but that was just speculation. Not sure if Whittier made the rads for Ford or not."
