Trying to ID this Fomoco part & have part number


Recommended Posts

I know how the Ford Part code works, but googling a 1963 Ford Fairlane, I cannot seem to find what & where these go. Fomoco part number reads: C3OB-16188-B. I have looked at Ford Fairlanes (& 500 & Squire) and still cannot see where these might go. I have three, so I don't know if it is a full set, or if they go on individually. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I think I can help you.

C3OB-16188-B is indeed a Ford part but it is just an ID number off the part and not the part number. I believe the part number is C3OZ-16098-A or B, which would make it a fender ornament from a '63 Fairlane.

I believe the '63 Fairlane Sport Coupe had three of these vertical ornaments on each fender.

They weren't vertically applied. They were applied horizontally inside the contrasting color stripe, and then only rarely. By far a majority of the cars did not have them. These are the only 2 pictures of them I could find online (one is a brochure image):

Hats of to you both! I can't tell you how many hours I have into researching these off & on in the past few months. I probably never would have even noticed them in the pictures above if I had seen them. I think I was automatically looking for them to be parallel to each other rather than in a straight line. So again, thanks for your help!
