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

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.
