I have a 66 Mustang with a 289, at a recent car show the judge (who seemed to be very knowledgeable about early Mustangs) mentioned that I have a 1972 alternator instead of the correct 1966 model. Physically and electrically I believe they are very similiar but the markings are different. He then mentioned that the 1972 dated alternator that I have is fairly rare and that I could probably sell it on [censored] to someone restoring a 72 and purchase the correct alternator for my 66. Anybody have any comments on this? Are the 72 alternators hard to come by?

Without the part number we can't tell you about THAT alt,rarity doesn't always follow ageing,,You may have an ulta high amp or low amp alt that is uncommon to the year

I should have know to include these, sorry. The numbers on the alternator are; 15V 3A D2ZF 10300. There is a another number which looks to have been stamped on later: 7173059.
