196? F100 Identification

w?? 122 B F100
Body 66B
TRANS A AXLE 12
GVW 5000
CERT?? 135
HP @3800 25

Requesting a storage title from IN DMV Last plated 1990.

Body is pretty sound. Floorboards bad and bed has been diamond plated. Engine & trans have been trashed with a no fit replacment 6cyl. and will have to be scrapped and new installed.

Would like to know year, origonal motor & trans.

Here's what I found: 1963 year

F10CE393492

F10= F-100 2wd
C= 292 2v V8
E= Mahwah, NJ assy plant
66B= Unibody Custom Cab model
Trans A= 3 speed standard trans. column shift
Axle code 12= 9 inch 3.89 gear ratio
GVW 5000= 5000lbs
WB 122= 122 inch wheel base
F100= F-100 model truck
CERTHP135= 135 is rated HP at 3800 rpm
[email protected]= is the rpm at which HP is figured to get above number
25= (DSO)Richmond ,VA sales district

There's more on that second row that can be decoded. But what you listed points to a 1963 model year F-100

Thanks, Continuing to do research found some of the info you provided. Any insight on the origonal color? The one code I found crossed to Viking Blue?? The sections under chrome might be a shade of blue but the faded sections look Turquoise. Buffed out the under chrome and I like the color and would like to reuse same and cut in wheel areas in white.

Look on the second row and between "Wheelbase" and "Model" it should have a spot with 1 or 2 letters for Color. Farther over it may have a spot for "Date", something like 15L as an example. THat gives you the exact date it was built.

Found it "B" for turquoise. Thanks for the help. Most of the text on plate is missing only stamped or raised lettering left. It helps knowing where to look.

I found the code "B". The Ford number was AE60 556-A (3 oz spray)
C ( qt can )
S ( 6 oz spray )

If you look farther to the right, there's a code for the interior trim level. It's the 3rd group from the right on that same row. It's actually part of the body code.

Leadsled91-

Here's the info on your truck:

F10YR872839

F10= F-100 2wd
Y= 352 2v CID
R= San Jose, Ca. assembly plant
872839= 1966 model year, order of assembly.

Look on the lower line of the tag on the door and post the rest here. I can tell you much more on the truck with that.

Leadsled....your number breaks down to a super early June 66 build date....month started at 872000....
Kaker...yours was a march 63 build.


My 65 number shows as a June build, but tags on components show later build dates....so the list is a generalization...but pretty dard close.

sure wish the 65-6 had build dates on the door tags.....

Not really, they look physically the same. If a real "purist" was to look at it, he might say so, but I'll bet there's alot of them out there with that swap and nobody's the wiser!

Take a look through my gallery at the "352" I just put back into my 65.
