Antifreeze question

What type antifreeze is used in the 1998 Ford 460 engine?
Going to pick up MH Wednesday and wanting to be sure we have proper fluids I case it is low.

Probably left the factory , with long life ( pink ).
BUT: at 16 years old , should have been changed twice , so no telling what's in it now.

That would have been factory filled with green coolant. Most of the newer coolant available at Autozone/NAPA will be similar to gold that is compatible with green.

16 years have past since Ford put the original antifreeze in.
If you can ask the previous owner if he ever changed the coolant and what he used when he did.

We got it from a dealer. It was one they took in on trade. They didn't know.
