If they are mounted on the KKX or DOZA-B spindles then they fit. At the very least they are a good starting point and rare in their own regard. If that is the case then you can press the studs out , detail the hubs for originality and then install new rotor hats (NPD now sells some by themselves) and press the studs back on and after having them turned to true up. The rotors are needles in the haystack now given Branda and NPD are out of stock of the replacements Tony Branda had made up years ago . i think it took more then 10 years to sellout the first run . i was told by Tony before his passing that it was too big of a investment to let sit that long so don't expect anymore replacements anytime soon.

I have one DOAZ 3108 B and one KKX [passenger side] they appear to be coated withs some sort of aluminum paint/coating which makes them look ugly---rotors to me appear to be original and in fairly good shape--rotor on the other hand are blue in color and most likely fake---I have in my warehouse BENDIX-FE 776-AO, but am not sure if this is correct---thus I need one DOAZ 31O7 one set of pads and someone would have correct rotors I would buy them also. in retrospect if anybody needs KKX or DOAZ 3107 B spindle I  would be willing to part or trade them--thanks

Here are a couple of pics of an original rotor and a new repro like you are looking for. Notice the factory slapped on blackout.

The main thing that jumps out at me is the face of the center portion of the rotor is flat on my originals and the repro rotors. I'm not saying yours aren't original just I have never seen ones with the recesses yous have. Others may have seen them.

If the rotors fit on the special KKX or DOZA-B spindles then the rotors are the special ones too regardless of if assemblyline or aftermarket. The most important thing is to have something that fits in this world of even finding a aftermarket will be difficult . I would repair/restore the ones on the car now if need be. I have a pair of aftermarket Shelby rotors on my shelves for save keeping in case one of my cars needs them. I am sure there are others like myself but it may be difficult and expensive to try and pry them loose unless they have sold the car etc. The point is for the uninformed is that ether type of special rotors are hard to find and you shouldn't pass up a aftermarket one in the hopes of finding a NOS original. You are looking at lottery ticket odds finding NOS special rotors IMO.Even finding used original ones to rebuild are likely only smaller less lottery win odds. Original are not marked with a Ford trademark or engineering number and the subtle nuances differences between the aftermarket and assemblyline are small. Once wheels are mounted even the subtle differences disappear. If every other thing on the car is original belts,battery,tires etc. then maybe it may make a difference other wise it will not effect the big picture much IMO.

Those would be very close in appearance to original assembly line. Bendix was a OEM.
