    That's the year with the front clip that works well on a '64/'65 Ranchero or Falcon; the fender side detail matches up perfectly into the door detail.

    Never heard of the 404 model...cool looking car. The 404 badge threw me....I know of the 406 and 410 FE's....guess it's not an engine badge, rather a model badge.

    Yep, essentially the same cars except for a few stampings, badgings & interior bits. This 202/404 model year's fenders match up to the Falcon doors much better that the later year Comet fronts:
