I'll throw some more detail out there, they are Torx T-50 heads M10-1.50 x 3.175….my understanding is that this cross-references to a Ford part number actually (Part# W504775-S424)...though this is the "urban legend" portion that I've never actually verified.

But...if you can find someone hoarding old Ford parts, you may be able to find the bolts cheap.

No urban legend. I scooped up two bags off ~15 each new off eBay for cheap. Ask Galpin as I gave him a bag.
