    Hi, anyone have master parts catalog, or any documents/literature about the Meteor built in 1964 by FoMoCo Canada?

    Basically, this car body is a Mercury full size, the frame and interior is a Galaxie, and options were minimal, making this car a little unique. As an example, the 'Breezeway' models of the Mercury line had a powered roll down window, this was an option for the Meteor, as mine has the 'Breezeway' roof line, without the breezeway roll down window, the rear window is one piece glass.
    FoMoCo of Canada built this car as a Meteor, not as a Mercury and not as a Ford. I have the original 1964 Ford, Mercury and Meteor service manual already, and the original 1964 Meteor owners guide.

    What I'm looking for specifically, is small stuff, like part numbers used on the front fender trim molding.

    Not many of these 2 doors around that I know, and very limited information on the net, that is why I joined this forum, hopefully someone out there has more information we can discuss.

    Thanks in advance.

    Does that have information about part numbers for a 1964 Meteor?

    Here is a part number C4MB 16165G LH
    I am looking for the specific part number for the right hand side.
    Also, I am assuming this part was optional on Mercurys.

    It has part numbers for US built vehicles. Many of those part numbers will work for Canadian built vehicles. Unique trim for Canadian vehicles will not be listed.

    The part number you listed above isn't a Ford part number. If you got it off of the actual part, know that Ford does not mark parts with part numbers. They use an engineering number which has the same format and is similar to an actual part number however it is not a part number. This link may help.
    http://www.fordification.com/tech/partnumbers_overview.htm

    In addition to that, what you posted is not in a correct format. " C4MB 16165G LH"
    Ford part numbers have a prefix, suffix and a base. The base you listed "16165G" is incorrect as a letter would not be in the last position. AND the right hand side would be an even number for the base. 16165 is an odd number typically indicating the left side.

    It would be easier to show me a picture of the part you are seeking and I can look up the US number.

    Here is both, a picture of the engeering/part number and the actual part:

    Picture of part:
    asidneybc.ca_automobiles_meteor_C4MY_16165_G_LH_molding.png

    The above is the left hand side.
    Parts that I have seen online that have a letter 'C' and not a 'G' are quite different.
    I could then assume if I am looking for the right hand side "RH", then the number could be:
    C4MB 16164 G RH ?
    The parts I have seen online advertised as "C4MB 16164" is not the part I am looking for.

    OK - I guess I was not specific.

    Do you have a picture on the vehicle?
    OR
    Where is this mounted?

    Question there are 3 versions of this trim depending on where the turn signal is located. Not seeing the front of the vehicle I just don't know.

    The part number is -
    Right side C4MY-16164-
    Left side C4MY-16165-

    What is missing from the above part numbers is the suffix. The choices are A, B or C depending on turn signal mounting location.

    OK on second look suffix B would not work because that part is for either a wagon or a convertible body style. So your choices are narrowed to either an A or a C suffix depending on turn signal location.

    Both the links you posted are not the correct part.

    The trim for the Meteor has no turn signal in it.
    The only turn signal is in the bumper:

    Front fender mounted molding with lower mounted turn signal lamps are part numbers.

    Right side C4MY-16164-C
    Left side C4MY-16165-C
