calling all blue oval fans.....

what is different about this door tag:
I'll go out on a limb and say the Tag is a Fraud. judging by the Apron stamping, someone is/was trying to pass off a 302 2V Mustang as a GT500 or Cobra Jet Powered Car.


have fun with this one guys

The Star simply indicates the beginning and the end of the VIN. Example:*674005432168* I assume this way someone could not add digits at the beginning or the end as the VIN was simply pounded into (Of all Places) Radiator Supports and inner fender sheetmetal. Both of which were commonly replaced after Front end collision damage. Not one of FORD's "Better Idea's"!!

Not that I know(or care to know)anything about "Furds"but does that serial number tag have enough digits for 1968.GM cars always had 13, you only have 11.Is that normal or did ford keep their serial# short as to not confuse their owners.

pete, good catch on the F and R

dajudge, the 89 dso is the key

12 bolt, bingo on the star

ssteve, get back in your shop and get that firebird done, I need Frank on the LS6, Stuart is waiting patiently.

Here is the buck tag, you will notice an S on this one where the F and R are on the others. The F 302 is on the apron, the S 390 is on the buck and the R 428 is on the door tag.

Keep the guesses coming guys.

"NOT FOR TITLE OR REGISTRATION"

Is that unusual to state this in regard to the VIN on this plate?
