HOW TO DECODE YOUR VIN NUMBER ON YOUR 1969 OR 1970 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.
