I need to find a single piston for a 429 ford 385 series 1977 engine. I broke one of the pistons removing stuck oil rings. Pictures to follow.

Ford did not produce a 429 in 1977.  The passenger car 429s were produced from 1968-1973, then the Commercial 429s from 1979-1997 or so.  The Commercial 429s and light duty 429s use pistons that are entirely different from each other.   Please describe the features of the piston needed or provide a picture.

429 piston  Empty 1973 not 1977, my my typing mistake

Oops. The year is 1973. The engine is out of a 1973 LTD 2door.  
The picture is a side view and it shows the marking "429 -X". I have another picture that shows the top.
Even though the picture attached in the next post of mine is small, it takes a while to load into the post.
Thank you.
