I am not sure what your asking, but I will guess.

I believe the block date code is 8=1968,F=June,29=day of the month.
The dampner also I believe is for a 68. I am guessing someone change the bottom end over the years with a 68 block. I think the heads and intake are correct for 67.

I know someone will correct me if I am wrong. Hope you findout what you need to know.

trans, I believe RUG-M & M1 is for '67, M2 is '68, M3 is '69.
Crank pulley 6321-B is '68 390GT 1 belt standard application
Intake C6AE-9425-H '66-67 428 PI Aluminum dual plane intake. Believe the correct should be either C7AE-9425-E '66/67 390GT cast iron used from 11/1/66 - 9/17/67 or C7AE-9425-J 390GT cast iron from 9/17/67.
This info is from my casting guide book. I use as a guide ONLY, may not always be 100% correct.

Block 32DIF 8F29 = Block cast June 29, 1968 (likely used in a late 68 or early 69 Ford)

Heads:C7AE-A = 390GT head used during 67-68 on Mustangs and other Fords

Intake:C6AE 9425-H = not the original intake for the 67

Rear End-79808930/OC-V1 = Not sure where these came from. Originally there would have been a tag on the front of the housing under one of the third member retaining nuts

Transmission-RUGM2-Metal Tag matches Vin # 7T02S

Odd, but two possibilities IMHO. If the VIN is a very late one then its possible this is just an example of a early (normally a 68 trans) application of this transmission model.

Other possibility is that its a 68 trans that someone stamped the VIN on

Isn't turning out to be a "matching numbers" car

What seems odd to me is I don't recall seeing a VIN stamped on the identifier tag. The #'s on those are typically internal plant #s from assembly. I would expect VIN to be stamped on upper ear or rear of main case.

Would seem way too hard for Ford to organize the trans plant to pre-stamp VIN's on the toploader tags. Would be a nightmare to match up at the assembly plant.

My 68 looks pretty darn original and they do not match.... other than type (RUG AD) but the partial VIN is stamped on the trans mounting flange.

Thanks. I read too much into the response. I read it that he had compared the tag and it "matched" what he thought should match a car with a 7T02S car
