C4SE9425A is as follows:

C= decade of 1960
4= year in decade
S= thunderbird
E= engine department
9425= basic group number
A= design change

4A2 is the date code:

4= 1964
A= January
2= second day

there may also be a casting mark of DIF or CF --symbol F inside a C-- indicating Dearborn or Cleveland Foundry

Alright, still having no luch getting my hands on the stuff I need. Everyone I know with a truck can never take the time to help me out, so I'm thinking about just ordering a transmission from TCI so I can go ahead and take care of the transmission end of it. Are their any difference in the C6 transmission over the years that I need to look out for? I just want to make sure that ANY c6 is gonna bolt up and work before I commit any money to it.

The only problem I see with the C6 swap is the shift indicator reading. Most all C6 were SELECT-SHIFT and the MERC-O-MATIC you guys have is DUAL RANGE or GREEN DOT.

The indicator will read D2 when you are actually in DRIVE with the C6.

If you go with TCI, they will offer the best of the best.

PERSONALLY...

I would have the CRUISE-O-MATIC pumped up. Good transmission.
