Mustang Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) offer several pieces of information about your Classic Mustang. Decoding this information can tell you the year your vehicle was assembled, the assembly plant, the body style, the engine cubic inch displacement (CID), and consecutive unit number. This guide is written to take the mystery out of 1967 and 1968 Classic Mustang VIN numbers. Please remember to indicate below if this guide is helpful to you.
HOW TO DECODE YOUR VIN NUMBER ON YOUR 1967 OR 1968 FORD MUSTANG
Each letter or number in a Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, stands for something. For the purpose of explaining each individual letter and number, we have created a sample VIN number. Then we have broken this VIN number down, explaining what each number and letter represent.
OUR SAMPLE VIN NUMBER: 7R02C1140017 - Designates the year the vehicle was assembled.
R - Designates one of three assembly plants (there are F, R and T)
02 - Designates one of three body styles (there are 01, 02 and 03)
C = 289 2 V
A = 289 4 V
J = 302 4 V (1968 Mustang only)
K = 289 4 V high performance (1967 Mustang only)
S = 390 4 V
X = 390 2 V (experimental 1967 Mustang only)
Y = 390 2 V (1968 Mustang only)
W = 427 4 V (1968 Mustang only)
Q = 428 4 V CJ (1968 Mustang only)
114001 - Designates the consecutive unit number
DECIPHERING THE CODE:
In summary, our VIN number that we used as an example, tells us the following:It is a 1967 Mustang that was manufactured in the San Jose, California assembly plant. It is a Fastback with a 289 2 V engine and was the 114,001 car assembled.
