HI, There isn't really a straight answer.. there is a lot of different brands and types or plugs that work just fine in a stock 460.. The Stock brand for Ford was ether Motor Craft or Auto light , but any brand listed well work fine and as for the numbering find a mid range and you'd be good.
good luck
