A question on connecting rods in the FE or other Ford motors.

Pulled the tired and badly rusted 352 out of the 65. Got the motor on the engine stand rolled it over to take a look at the bottom end and here is what I saw.

Question is does anybody have any info on why only one of the con rods is a bronze or cooper color?I Have been told by a reliable source that they have been seen in other Ford motors. Possibly Ford was running some test with them. I thought that maybe it had been overheated. I pulled the cap the bearing looks good not much wear on it at all. OOOOps I see I posted this in the wrong form, Moderator feel free to delete if you like ssorry.
