Welcome to FTE

F70 = F700 (gas).

D = 361 2V FT engine.

U = Louisville KY Assembly Plant.

C73119 = 1968, assembled January 1968. This is the F700's specific serial number.

Ford confusion Or, it could be a 1976, as FoMoCo used the same sequence of serial numbers as they did in 1968.

1968 serial number range: C00,001 - D82,000.

1976 serial number range: A00,001 - D25,000.

If a 1976, there's two ways to ID:

The Warranty Plate, located on the left door face below the latch, will have 1976 on the 3rd line between the GVW and the DSO code.

Safety Standard Certification Label intro'd in 1970, glued to the left (drivers) side B pillar below the door striker plate. Has the production date at the upper right or left corner.
