I will attach two pictures of a original 68 J code. One you can not see is the battery inspection label above the battery. NPD has concours decal as does ECS. Marty

Gonna get dinged a point for that rad cap!

And note the lack of the commonly used "Caution Fan" decal, which was not applied at the factory. A later safety recall item, which many believe to be correct...

I was just about to order these from NPD and noticed that the service instruction sticker doesnt have the same layout as the one dalorzo shows or what ruppstang has in the eginebay. I don't find any other matching sticker on NPD homepage for 1968. Where exactly did you get the picture dalorzo? The one i get when filtering on 1968 is the below. Since it made me not certain it was correct I am not sure the emmission sticker is the right one either even if hompage says its the one for 1968 289 2V. So if any kind soul could verify it for me I'd appreciate it.

While at it; the 289 sticker has checkered flags on it, I thought the sticker for the 289 2V was without the checkered areas...?

Jester:

Per Kentucky Mustang Parts:

C8DE-9C485-C is for the 170-302 2V engines

C8OE-9C485-B is for the 302/351 4V engines

C8OE-9C485-C is for the 390/428 4V engines

Hope this helps.

Here's the web page I obtained the info: http://www.kentuckymustang.com/category_s/1912.htm

An example from the NPD site, D-MC138.

Here is their D-43 which they call out as for 68 Mustang... no Ford Numbers on them so not sure how to tell one from another.

D43. It's the same as I found. But if you look closely on Ruppstangs photo you see it's another layout. Makes me wonder....

Thanks Bill, seems the emissions sticker is the right one anyways.

Not my car, agree on deduction on cap. No! caution fan decals I deduct for them because it was not a factory idem.

The decals finally came and are now attached. When the D-43 sticker came it showed it had the same layout as in the picture of the 302. Still dont know why there are 2 layouts though. Thanks for the pointers. Attached is a picture of the final results.
