Do a web search for "Mustang VIN decoder". There are lots of them on the web.

Anyway, your instincts are correct. "6F09T702927" decodes to 1966, built in
Dearborn, Michigan, Fastback, 200 CID six cylinder, sequence number 702927.

If it was a real Shelby GT350 it would have K instead of T and would have a
Shelby name plate as well. To be a regular GT, it would need A or K instead
of the T.

If the body is still in good shape, and whoever put in the V8 did a proper
job of upgrading springs, brakes, suspension and drive train all around, it
may still be worth restoring as it should be fun to drive.

3M makes a automotive spray adhesive, if its like the rest of
their product line, it a superior product.

Hi All,

I would like to make a request. Please talk to your
fellow truckers and find out about auto shows in your
area. They don't have to be Ford specific or truck
specific. If you have a form or flier, great! You
can fax it to me at (770) 806-1955 or mail it to me at
PO Box 422, Lilburn GA, 30048. If all you have is a rumor
contact me anyway. I've learned of five shows in the
last 24 hours, just by calling for info on one show.

If you are wondering what this is for, Ken and I would
like to meet more of you, and we know that Pigeon Forge
is a long way for some of you. So we are going to try
to see if we can go to some of these other shows around
the country.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Sincerely,
Peggy Payne FTEI

Subject: FTE Pre61 - frenched headlights and Fairlane tilts

short of buying the expensive 150.00 kits can anyone tell me what is
involved in frenching headlights. Does it just involve stretching the
buckets and using a different trim ring ??? Bought a nice chrome grill at
P.F. and it would look nicer with the frenched lenses

also

Anyone out there with experience installing Fairlane front tilts who would
like to answer a rookie's questions ???

Peggy the streetrod nationals will be sometime in August in Louisville
Kentucky. This show is limited to pre-48 cars/trucks. This is a 3 day event
and it drew about 2500 cars/trucks last year. This show will be held in
Louisville for the next 13 years. Lots of vendors also attend this show.

Chris,

6 - 1966, F - Dearborn, Mi., 09 - Fastback (2+2), T - 200cu in 6cyl.,
702927 - the 602927th vehicle off of the Dearborn Assembly Line
that model year. 63A - Fastback, A - Raven Black, 25 - Red Vinyl
and Red Rosette Vinyl, 06G - 6 July, 1966, 52 - Des Moines, Iowa,
3 - 3.20:1, 5 - 4 speed manual.

This door tag came off of a 1966 Mustang 2+2, Raven Black with a
Red interior, 200 6cyl and Dagenham 4 speed. Scheduled build
date is 6 July, 1966, sold through the Des Moines, Iowa District
Office. The 7.5 in. rear gear was a 3.20:1. That is the info for the
door. It could be off of another car. The VIN on top of the Driver's
Side inner fender, just in front of the shock tower is the one a title
office will use for identification. To be a real Shelby, the 5th
character would have to be a K for HiPo 289. Also, a genuine
Shelby will have a SFM tag riveted over the VIN on top of the inner
fender. Of course, there are a lot of things to look for. If the car
was
originally a 6cyl., the fuel line would come out at the bottom of the
driver's side inner fender just behind the shock tower. If originally
a V8 car, it would come out just in front of the shock tower. This is
something not usually changed unless the builder is going to a
lot of trouble to disguise a 6cyl. car as a Shelby. Also, it would have
a 9in. rear end and front disc brakes, under rider traction bars,
racing seat belts, etc, etc. I doubt that its real, but if it has some
or
all of the things listed above, it could be.

Hi Peggy, There is a show on the Mississippi coast in October. There were
1800 assorted cars and trucks last year, it is much like the show at PF.
The show was advertised in one of the major magazines, Hot Rod or Rod
& Custom, etc.
It is called the Biloxi Beach Party and is sponsored by the casinos
in the area.
If you want for info e-mail me and I will try to find the ad from
last year

Terry
