ford super dexta serial number

Post by Theo67 »

Hi I bought a ford super dexta with the serial number 09C733341 or 090733341.
I cannot find the correct year of construction in the list that I see more often. does anyone have an idea?

09C-733341 is January 1963. To find the engine number look on the LH side of the block just below the front exhaust port on a raised portion, it will be a 16xxxxx type number unless you don't have your original block. You should also look for casting codes on all major castings.

Your Dexta is indeed a late mid 1960 one, soon before the restyling unless you have flow control, in which case your Dexta would be one of the first restyled Dextas. Look for the engine number and casting codes, the engine number will be 14xxxxx possibly 1460121, but might well not be the case.

Thanks for reply am I right in thinking it isn’t a super dexta with that number
I want to restore to as near original as possible.
If it’s a dexter not super I will have a badge and nose cone for sale 🤣

It is indeed a Dexta, no Super Dexta until April 1962.

1616156 sounds about right, so January 1963. Check the casting codes too to be absolutely sure.
