1970 CAPRI GT3000 FORD AUSTRALIA SHOP MANUAL ERROR COMPETITION

Hi Guys .............   anyone for a little trivia ???
 
Couldn't believe it when I saw it !    .....  has anybody noticed a piece of carelessness or maybe laziness when this Factory Book was produced ?
This 1970 CAPRI GT3000 Book is dedicated to V6 yet in the most obvious spot, there's a V4 Engine on display instead !
Has anybody spotted it ?  (Took me 7 years to spot it !)
 
First one who spots it and reports its location here on Forum, gets a Brand New set of complimentary Ventilated Points (S83V) suits Capri 3L 1970-1975 inc RS3000 and TC Cortina 2L Pinto (may have non-vented if preferred) inc Post Aust wide.
 
Just For Fun ! ...........  and a new set of Points !  .....   (happy to send different Points subject to me having them)!

    Correct John
    but i didnt want to go that far, lest I upset too many people who believe Ford, or any Car Coy for that matter,
    can do no wrong. I just think it's a bit rich where theyve put a V4, with GENERATOR to boot, where it sticks out
    like a @#$%^&*() in the place they put it !
    cheers mate
