build sheet decode
#1
I'm working on decoding the build sheet for my car. Deciphering the color abbreviations used to code the suspension and steering parts is a challenge. I have decoded about half of the colors, still working on the rest. Anyone done this before? Any suggested reference sources?

Thanks, Chuck

I have some information (mostly 1972) that I'm relatively certain of and other that is a bit sketchy, and some that I haven't been able to decode. Like all things Ford, the codes and abbreviations used changed frequently. And there is no "how to decode book" that I am aware of. PM or e-mail me with where you'd like to start (it is a lot of data) and I'll help where I can.

I recall reading on the Marti Report website that Marti is working on a decoding book. I think it was on one of Marti's blogs. My 73 convert is original and I have owned since 1974. If you see a code on my build sheet that matches yours I may be able to help identify the code or color.

Between the two copies I found in the car I can see all the codes:
