Ford Part Numbers

Unraveling Ford Part Numbers

Part numbers (used for ordering and inventory purposes, and marked on parts boxes, tags and labels) should not be confused with engineering or casting numbers (normally stamped on or cast in the part for identification during the manufacturing process). They are not interchangeable — however all follow the same general rules, so these charts may be used to provide approximate interpretations of all types of these markings.

For 1940’s parts (A) the first character is sometimes omitted. Similarly, the final character is occasionally dropped from the prefix at the whim of the Ford Parts Number creators. Thus, such items as “Ford Rubber Cement” may appear with a part number of 8A-19552-B, rather than A8AZ-19552-B

Subassembly parts or accessory kits may add an additional letter (starting with A, then B, and so on) following the Thousands digit in the part number identifier. Thus, we have a Mustang automatic transmission shift lever with part number C5ZZ-7213-M, while the accompanying selector dial for a center-console equipped Mustang would be C5ZZ-7A213-D.
