All About Build Sheets
#1
i checked for my build sheet today and i found it just in front of the drivers seat under the sound proofing mat, i can read a bit of it but the rest is damaged from rust stains from light surface rust on the floor.
does anyone own a 1971-72 Grandé that i can read the build sheet details from to complete the factory option listings ( i have a brand new repo build sheet to stamp as a display at car shows)

Hey,

Send me a clear copy of your damaged buildsheet and i figure it out for you.
Do you have a Marti report also ??

( did you look on the passengers side too !?? , often there are 2 buildsheets present in the car )

ill check out the passenger side some more did not see another?, its hard to read mine but using others on this site Ive worked out the letters.
when i take a pic of my build sheet the letters don't show up so i cant send you a copy sorry, im cleaning it up and getting it laminated today to protect it and ill transfer the info onto a repo build sheet i just got to show at car shows (does any one know how to reproduce the letters to look original?)
i will have another look on the passenger side to find another i only thought there was one per car?.
i cant send you a better copy as the letters don't show up on film? but i copied down all the info i could find on it after hours of straining my eyes lol.
I'm 100% on the info i have except for the radio codes? ( i have a AM with eight track) and the fender skirts in the wheel area ( what does B mean?).
I'm going to copy it all onto a repo build sheet i got but need to get stamps to match can anyone help me to find the stamps?.
(also what does the rotation number at the top mean?)
i will get under my car to copy down the rear axle info because i cant read that also.

OK i found a second one under my passenger side carpet and its in much better condition and i can read everything this time ( thank you for letting me know there was a second).
Ive updated my sheet now and its 100% correct.
a interesting thing i found is one sheet is a may 1971 and the other is a may 1970 issue?

I knew it !!! , you are a lucky guy !!

Glad that you found your buildsheets , in almost perfect condition.
They do not always have 2 buildsheets, some have none , or one from another car.
But your car is a Dearborn car and there it happened many times.

Do you still want to make a replica buildsheet ??

I made one for myself to put on the dashboard on a carshow , i can make you one if you want.
( if so , please do a better job on the buildsheet you filled in , some Zs look like 2s , 5s look lik Ss and box 23 - 36 i can't read at all !? ).

As your original buildsheet looks nice and de floorsections from you car look nice your car should be in pretty good original condition.

Do you think it's possible to put the car on a car-lift and clean the car from the underside so many of the original marking become visible ??

If you picture the original markings and send them to me i can use them for my database that i'm building ( the 71-73 Mustang code's dots and stripes database).

My direct emailadress is johnlies@xs4all.nl , if you give me you direct emailadres i can send you some undercarriage pictures , so you know where to look for.

As we have such a nice conversation i will give you a 1+ reputation point.

John, That's cool that your documenting the dots and stripes for the 71/73s. If you have not started a thread here you should to get input from more members. I have two originals of my build sheet for my 73 Convertible. But I found mine way back in 1974 or 75 when I took my interior out to rustproof the floors (it was supposed to be the last of the Mustang Convertibles). It's been a long time but I'm pretty sure both of mine were under the front carpets too. One of mine looks like it is a carbon of the other. Between the two copies I have all the codes. It looks like the form date on mine is Aug 1972.

Here are mine if it helps with your documentation.
