Ford Truck Basic Parts Numbers - Regular Parts

The information presented on this page is an 'supplement' to the How to Decipher FoMoCo Parts Numbers tutorial. The information presented in the following table was transcribed directly from the '64-'72 Ford Truck Master Parts Catalog (MPC) 1975 Final Issue. There are other similar Basic Part Number lists posted on various internet websites, but when comparing them to my MPC , I found many discrepancies in number ranges...with some ranges missing altogether, probably due to their pertaining to cars rather than trucks. Since these sites fail to note the source for their lists, I could not verify their accuracy, and therefore decided to transcribe the following table myself directly from the MPC.

NOTE 1: This series has become inactive and parts qualifying will be identified with part numbers from a more appropriate series.

NOTE 2: 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".


These tables are by no means all-inclusive, and I would gladly welcome your comments or corrections. Please e-mail me at
