VIN question

To all
I have a Bronco that was produced in the summer of 66 with a vin of 00442
would it be safe to assume this would have been the 442 bronco ever produced

Hey Mike. Nope, I think you have a very interesting VIN there. It doesn't follow the normal sequence, so could be an extremely rare "first edition" with special VIN. Unless you're leaving numbers out?
Even if it's sequence, the numbers were shared with pickups of all descriptions, so for instance if yours was the 442nd truck off the line, it would probably have been the first Bronco! Ford probably made many hundreds, and perhaps thousands of pickups for every EB made.
(edit: I guess that was a "slight" exageration since the numbers in that other thread seem to indicate that they were much closer together than many hundreds, much less thousands of trucks)

Here's another discussion about it that is very interesting and detailed: Earliest Broncos known to exist (revised)!! - ClassicBroncos.com Forums
Definitely add your info.

Hey Chad, does the Broncohio site decode '66's? I thought they didn't have much info there.
And Marti does not have info for '66 and '67 Broncos unfortunately (or at least '66's) so can't help there either.

Good luck Mike!

Paul

PS: if yours is a 442 following the normal sequencing (rather than just zeros) then you're in the twenties as far as earliest Broncos built.

Dont know much more'n I posted (oneada sites that has a decoder ie vin = paint color, options'n such). I C things'n pass em on. No real experteese cept a long term owner/been on da net since '66 (pre ARPINET).

I followed yer CB link. Looks like the OP needs other #s in front? (734xxx?)

Yeah, register over there'n some 1 may help ya. Egos seem 2 have shrunk some in the last 1/2 decade. My head aint bit off every time I pop up now...
