X Garage fit the first 428 CJ into Cougar 038 after it was retired as a intro Show Unit GTE 427. This was before the 135 cars were built. Perhaps the more than dozen cars (Cougar Mustang Torino) built prior to the regular production option 68.5 launch were slated for the Garage prior to the plant lines being able to facilitate all the special parts. This is where the suspensions, emissions and Ram system was initially configured. They also performed the Show and Race Prep. We know the car this engine was removed from was prepped for the Magazines and likely was breathed on over at the X Garage. I have no clue if the abbreviated G O is in any way associated but it reminded me of some of this early CJ history.

The "428-SUPER" did not show up on the pistons until late '68 and then was used on all 428 pistons after that.  The "428-CJ" as shown is correct for the first generation 428 CJ pistons.

Thanks!  I did read the ID page.  It mentions the "SUPER" being 3rd gen and pics of them, but doesn't say that the earlier versions only said "CJ", and there aren't any pics of earlier versions.  That might be a nice addition.

So Preaction has 1st gen pistons!  Very cool!

Out of curiousity, what did the 2nd gen look like?  Same as 1st gen, except for the engineering number?  Can you actually see the difference in the reinforced areas?

Mike there is I will take a look and post it.

Just curious.  The info and pics might make a good addition to the Piston page in the components section.  I've only ever seen the SUPER pistons, but I imagine the rest of you guys have seen quite a few more pistons than I ever have :-)

Mike, Im still new to CJ's the piston is marked C8OE-6110-AE its a very small number on the inside of the casting so Im pretty sure the A is an A as the top part is filled in, in any event there is two characters and I believe its AE on the end. Apparently this is correct as there listed on Mustang Tek.

It's the car shown in the 428CJ announcement brochure in '68. I wonder where the car went?
I asked about the car when looking into the engine and from talking to Phil Parcells and Bill Blasore it is generally agreed that the car is gone. The engine came to Carlisle with a  Ford guy from Michigan who found the engine, trans, and rear center section in the corner of a garage he said  there were no parts of a car there.

interesting pistons.  They don't say "SUPER" on them.  Is there a part / engineering number on the pistons?
