F600 VIN decode?

Hey all, I have an old '68 F 600 truck and was curious about it's origins. It was a county weed spray truck since new.....truck is in very good shape for it's age.
Vin- F60BRC44721
wb-174
color-j
model-F602
body-4381
then under both trans and axle-(2) and F8B?

Mostly want to know if the 5 speed is OD or direct......
Oddly, this truck has a 300 six in it.
Thanks!

VIN: F60BRC44721 // W.B. 174 / Color: J / Model: F602 / Body: 4381 / Trans: 2 / Axle: F8B / GVW(R): 20000 / DSO code omitted.

Mostly want to know if the 5 speed is OD or direct.

This truck has the optional 300 six in it.
F60 = F600 (gas).

B = 300 1V I-6 / 240 1V I-6 was standard equipment. All four FT V8's were also optional.

R = San Jose CA Assembly Plant.

C44721 = 1968, assembled June 1968.

174" Wheelbase.

J = Rangoon Red.

F602 = F600 (gas), 20,000 lbs. GVWR

4381: 43 = Charcoal Black Crush Vinyl & Charcoal Black Leeds Pattern Woven Plastic // 81 = 81A Standard Cab.

2 = Clark model 282-V 5 Speed Direct.

F8B:

F8 = Eaton Model 13802 2 Speed Rear Axle / 6.33/8.81 / 15,000 lbs. Rear Axle Capacity.

B = Ford (optional) 5,500 lb. Capacity Front Axle. 5,000 lb. capacity front axle was standard equipment.

20,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

DSO code omitted: 2 numbers = Decodes to the specific Ford District Sales Office the dealer ordered the truck from. If 6 numbers, the last 4 denote a Domestic Special Order.

You can get a copy of the original build sheet (and a lotta other stuff) from martiauto.com for a fee. Known in the hobby as a Marti Report.

Kevin Marti, a Mustang "nut" in Phoenix AZ has ALL the original 1967/79 FoMoCo records. Got them in the late 1980's when he found out FoMoCo was planning to THROW THEM AWAY!
