Hello all,

I'm brand new here and have just bought a '66 convert. that I had shipped out here to WA. from NY.
What I'm trying to find out is where is there a place to check your 11 digit VIN? I've found two spots but they don't match on the breakdown of the VIN. What I'm trying to find out is two things, what size of engine it is, one site says it's a 200 V8, the other is the inside color, it's pink now but the best I can tell pink was not an option in '66 but I did read the artical on the pink one.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks

The VIN number on your car will not tell the color of the car, but it will tell you the year(1st digit) the assembly plant (1st letter) the body style( next two digits) the engine code(single letter) and the unit number (last 6 digits)  engine codes for 66 V-8 are  A-289 4 barrel   C-289 2 barrel   K-289 HI-PO 4 barrel Wink

There are a number of books with Mustang VIN decoding information. Also online at www.mustangdecoder.com.

I have recently purchased a 1967 fastback. The VIN is stamped on the drivers side fender but right below that stamp aproximately 2-3 inches, the VIN is stamped again.

The VIN is also stamped on the passenger side fender.

There is a 6 digit number stamped on the drivers side fender toward the windshield. I think it is 1214D2 or the D could be a 0.

There is not any other place on the car that the VIN can be found.

Please help me with this! Are all these VIN stamps on the fenders common?
Thank You!

Apologies if I seem to be hijacking this thread, but it's the closest I could find. Yesterday, while doing some basement cleaning, I ran across the window sticker from my first car - a blue Mustang convertible, high performance v8, four speed.  I got to wondering if the car managed to last all these years; if so, the current owner might want to have the original sticker. It's what was called back then a "64-1/2" Mustang - they were introduced in April of 1964, and I bought it in May.

Has anyone ever been able to locate a current owner of an early Mustang (or any car, I suppose)? JackM

I lay claim to being the first person to put driving lamps inside the nose scoop - Lucas Flamethrowers - long before the factory did. I may be giving myself too much credit, though. Just maybe.

wow jack.. what a find...

as for finding if your original car still exists....

there are a few places that mustang owners have registered their cars with clubs.. somebody will have that info..

because of anti stalking laws .. its almost impossible to find current owners via a vin number..

Never would've thought of the stalking problem. It would be neat if I could find the current owner. Being a bit more realistic, I put 29,000 miles on it in twelve months before trading it for a Volvo P1800. At that rate it'd have 1,363,000 miles on it now. Probably needs a couple new tires.

look up some of the mustang registry site..

this is a K code registry..

http://www.hipomustang.com/

where you might be able to search your vin number off the build sheet and see if the car is still around...

Thanks for the info, but their system can't accept that my fifth digit is a D, not K, in spite of the fact that the sheet says I paid $65.70 for the "289 4V V8 Engine" and $188 for the "four speed transmission". Unless there was a 289 Low performance V8.
