C80E forging number for the "short rod. In '68 there was "to be" a HiPo 302 to replace the HiPo 289. the short rods , C8ZE balancer and C8ZE HiPo heads were made in advance so engines would be ready for production. That engine was cancelled when Ford planned to introduce the Tunnel Port 302 but as we know it too was cancelled ( for "street production"). The Rods were sold off as Muscle Parts" instead of being scrapped. The balancers and heads were sold as 1289 HiPo replacements.
They were not to be confused with Trans Am rods which were LONGER and used special bearings
   Are the rods for sale?

As GT350 said they were sold over the counter as Muscle Parts, and Ford sold a rod later in the 80's thru Ford Motorsport for 5.0's with the big bolts,I don't know if it is the same rod or forging number but wouldn't be surprised if it was.
