I'm the second owner of a '64 1/2 with a 260 A/T which has what I'm fairly certain is the original radiator. However, I think the part number is for a Falcon: DEP C3DE 8005
Any thoughts?

Many Falcon parts were used on the early vintage Stang.

You're saying your current RAD has that C3#? One to cherish and re-furb if/when needed for sure.

Thats pretty cool and not at all surprising an early car with that #..

Well, it's the radiator I pulled out of the car when I stripped it down to restore it. The radiator core is beat, having been crudely repaired (by me) when I was less financially sound in my teens. It's all there, including the squared off side bracket upper corners, with the "X" still visible in the upper bracket holes. Now I just have to find a good local place to restore it.

What is the three digit date code (Year/Month/Week format, Ie. 4FA) following the part number in smaller font?

I think that will help determine originality very quickly!
