Need help decoding an F-500 serial number for date


Recommended Posts


I have an old F-500 that was given to me by a friend that was cleaning out his lot, I am trying to figure out what year it was made so I can order various body parts. My local Ford garage can't seem to help me. Hopefuly someone will help me figure it out.

serial number- F50C0K17319

F=series, 50=first two numbers of series designation i.e.500 C=engine code, O=? may be part of engine code, K= assembly plant, 17319=sequential unit number. So that really doesn't help with the year. Idea! perhaps you can look at the casting date on something like the heads or intake manifold. Or maybe post a picture.
