"Which factory was my Mustang built at? On what day? Is it still the original
color? Where was it originally sold? Is it a 1964 1\2 or 1965?" These are just a few
of the questions that we are asked here at Mustangs Plus on a regular basis.
As Mustang owners, we all build a bond with our Mustang and knowing
this information is important to us. The first thing I do when I'm thinking about buying a
Mustang is to check the serial number and data plate for this information. As long as the
data plate is still attached to the door and the VIN numbers match, I can get a glimpse of
what that Mustang was like on the day it was new. And by using the charts on the next few
pages, you can figure out exactly how your Mustang looked to It's very first owner!
The factory codes give you the information to all of the above
questions and then some. To figure out how your Mustang came equipped form the factory,
cross check the VIN number of your Mustang to the VIN number found on your data plate (to
be sure another door with the wrong data plate hasn't been put on your car) and see
how your Mustang rolled off the assembly line!
After you have the numbers off your vehicle data plate
(located on the drivers side door frame), take a cruise through these pages to find out
how your Mustang came originally equipped from the factory.
