Where your Truck made?

Looking at the list of manufacturing plants where our Trucks are made --- whew! Ford is everywhere. U.S., Malaysia, Vietnam, Mexico, Ontario, Brasil, Venezuela. I'm made in Louisville, Kentucky (E).

I'm made in Louisville too. I clicked on the link you had posted there and it's quite impressive. I knew Ford had plants all over the world...but I didn't know they had that many.

We're really a global *****...None of the others, but I'd like to pull duty in the Vietnam plant, check out the peeps and countryside.

I'm wondering if the tranny was made in Louisville too...

With the popularity of the Model T rapidly escalating, Henry Ford went global...the first auto manufacturer to do so. Assembly plants were built in Dagenham, England; Singapore; Cologne, Germany; Bombay, India; Japan; South America; and other locations. Where there were no assembly plants, new Model T's were shipped CKD (completely knocked down) and assembled locally.

Sure are global mo fo's! Somewhere along the line I read or heard something about Ford was starting to use Mitsubishi Fuso transmissions. I don't know when or what models. I suppose if I dug around FTE there might be something about it.

My 84 was built in 84, but my 69, 70 and 72 were built in San Jose. I don't know where the Galaxie was built, haven't looked it up yet.

Fords built in San Jose (R) went to the following districts: 71 = Los Angeles; 72 = San Francisco; 73 = Salt Lake City; 74 = Seattle; 75 = Phoenix.

Both the Ranger (1983) and the Bronco II (1984) used either Toyo Kogyo (Mazda) or Mitsubishi 5 speed transmissions from day one.

Second digit in FoMoCo passenger cars VIN denotes assembly plant, this is true for all passenger cars from 1960 thru 1979.

Seems to me... most of my truck was built in my backyard. But originally does anyone have an idea on an 83' F250 351W 5.8L?
