1972 F600 VIN decode help

I recently picked up a 1972 F-600 Dump Truck at a local auction. Can anyone help me decode the VIN tag so I know exactly what I have when I go to plate it and insure it.

F60CCN25754
132T F604 D6or8 A F3B
16000 164 3800 48

On the "D6 or 8" there is a dent in the tag so I am unsure of what it is. I believe it to look closer to a 6.

The motor is a 330CID manufactured in Dec 71. It has a 2 speed split axle, 4 speed tranny, 5 yard dump, single rear dual axle. It has 92931 miles on it and runs great and everything works.
Thanks.

Welcome to FTE

F60 = F600 2WD (gas).

C = 330 2V Medium Duty FT engine.

132" Wheelbase.

T = Candyapple Red.

C = Oakville, Ontario Canada Assembly Plant.

N25754 = 1972.

F604 = F600 2WD (gas) / 16,000 lbs. GVWR

D 8: D = Black Vinyl / 8 = 81B Custom Cab.

A = New Process 435 4 Speed Manual Transmission.

F3B: F3 = Eaton Model 15201 Two Speed Rear Axle / 6.33/8.81-1 / 15,000 lb. Rear Axle Capacity // B = Ford Front Axle / 5,000 lb. Front Axle Capacity.

16,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

164 net HP @ 3,800 RPM

48 = Detroit MI Ford District Sales Office, where the original selling dealer ordered the truck from.

Do not believe the mileage shown on the odometer. The odometers on trucks of this vintage read to 99,999.9 then return to ZERO.

So...it could have 92,931 or 192,931 or 292,931 miles, or?

Thank you Bill. Yes, It could have rolled over. However looking it over under the hood it seems fairly clean for a 38 year old engine and truck. On the VIN tag I did put the numbers and letters as they were stamped there was no space between the 132T or the D8. It has Custom Cab on the body above the fuel cap and the seats are black vinyl as you decoded. Thanks for the rest of the information it will help a lot.

132T doesn't mean anything. It should read: W.B. 132 / COLOR T

The BODY code should read D 8.

Ford didn't always stamp these codes correctly.
