New here just bought two old Fords, 63 and a 58

Hello, new here but I just bought two what I think are both F600's. One is a 1963 with a gravel box and the other is a 1958 grain truck. I'll post up some pics soon. Found this site doing some research before I got them, seems like there is tons of info on here about these trucks.

Could use a little help with the VIN numbers though.

The '63 VIN is : F60DP421261

The '58 is: OF60L8P13062

Welcome to FTE, yes this is the place for information. Lots of good folks on here just wanting to help. Welcome!

Number Dummy is the appointed guru when it comes to VIN number breakdowns, I am sure he will be along shortly.

Welcome to FTE

1963:

F60 = F600.

D = 292 4V Heavy Duty.

P = Twin Cities MN Assembly Plant.

421261 = 1963, assembled June 1963.
--------------------------------------------
1958:

F60 = F600.

L = 272 2V Medium Duty.

8 = 1958.

P = Twin Cities MN Assembly Plant.

13062 = 1958 Numerical Sequence of Assembly, the trucks specific serial number.
