    Weekly Fun Question - Test Your 71-73 Mustang Knowledge

    With the increased interest in classic cars, there are many (out there) who are trying to "make a buck" through often dishonest moves. As some of you may know, you can now pretty much duplicate a complete car and even get documentation (counterfeit data plates) to back up your act.

    This week's question has to do with identifying a 1972 Mach I clone that has a counterfeit data plate that contains a "flaw." For the purpose of this exercise, the following applies:

    VIN:2F05F183481
    Color: A
    Trim: 5A
    Body Code: 63D
    Date: 12D
    DSO: 94
    Axle: B
    Trans: X

    Who will be the first to identify the "mistake" on the data plate that identifies this data plate as a possible forgery, in spite of the changes that were made to the car to make it appear to be a 1972 Mach I?

        I am going to have to make more difficult questions as you are absolutely correct - - the body code is for a fast back not a Mach I.

        The standard engine for Mach Is in 1972 was a 302 but the body code "error" sealed it for being a possible counterfeited data plate.

        Of course, the Marti Report would have brought this deception forward.

        That having been said, You did GOOD! You are the weekly winner for this weekSmile!

            I can deal with not winning, but with a vin of 2F05F183481 It would appear to me that the third and fourth digit 05 would declare it a Mach 1 with a standar sportsroof would be 02. Is this not correct?

              Yes, you are correct but the REAL purpose of the question was to draw attention to a counterfeit plate whereby the counterfeiter "forgot" or failed to change ALL the information on the counterfeit plate.

              The VIN is for a Mach I, BUT the body code is clearly for a "Sports Roof" which could indicate that the Sports Roof was changed to capitalize on the potentially higher investment value of the Mach I.
