Not this site.... The VIN decoder here is a piece of ****.....And really wrong most of the time.

Ok, so we know who has the correct data; and apparently it is common knowledge that the FTE vin decoder is messed up.
So who is responsible for making the corrections to the FTE vin decoder link? FTE (Internet Brands) is.
Where do I/we need to send a request for the thing to get fixed so that it reads correct information? Contact IB Tim or IB Adrian.
It's not for any lack of effort on my part. I live about 30 miles from IB headquarters, have volunteered to go there and fix the damn things.
Also offered to loan them my parts catalogs, so they could be scanned. Then we could parts catalog illustrations here on FTE...that are sadly lacking.
I also have factory color chip charts, upholstery swatches (in color) and full line Ford (parts counter use only) accessory brochures for 1965/66's. Bet y'all would like to see these pictured here on FTE.
Then y'all could see the factory convertible top offered for 1965/66's!
No...it's not what you think. 'Convertible Top' was Ford's name for a canvas Styleside bed "camper shell" with a porthole window...that could be folded flat when the truck was being driven.
