Build Sheet Decoding
#1
I have been gradually getting back to my Q-code project. A thread on here reminded me I never have purchased a Marti or Eminger invoice report.
Now, that being said I was lucky enough to find build sheets for both of my cars in good shape. I know the major decoding stuff, but have never seen a chart on the minor stuff, like wheel options etc. I was always impressed that my Q-code came with 15" wheels factory. Did they all?

So,
Question #1 who can help decode these, or point me to a decoder for 72's?
Question #2 what information would a Marti or Eminger bring beyond this, other than the exact number of cars like mine there are out there?
Thanks
Jim

I think the 73 Q code were the only ones that had the 14in wheels.Not sure if the 15s were standard or an option on the 71-72 Q codes.

I wonder though. When I got it (in 1993) it had a set of Ford 15" steel wheels and the Ford 15" trim rings/dog dishes. The cool part of that is those were in a barn and I only found out they came with the car after I purchased it!

The F60-15 could have come on steel wheels as well.

The "G" in the wheel area section does coincide with the paint code for the 15X7 steel wheels, which is green. The Magnum would have had an "O" for orange paint code.

Also, much of the codes you see are either paint colors, like suspension parts and the driveshaft (or/or/or - three orange stripes) or partial casting numbers, such as the fan and radiator. The color codes were for quick ID by assembly line workers, much faster to grab a color coded part than to read a part #.

Hemikiller is right My car came with the dog dish 15 inchers and my build sheet has the same codes as his car does, my invoice also corroborates that. The N in the hood area stands for non functional hood mine is a ram air car and has a F there for functional. In the radio area I T stands for AM 8-Track, the wiring loom has the same code as mine it has tach and guage package, The S in decor group interior stands for sports interior or mach 1 and the console is a no brainer w/clock.







I am just here to eat my lunch and screw stuff up!!!!!Haha

The preceding contributions are with regard to build sheet coding are correct. The boxes below the identified componenent either identify a paint code or a tag id. I strongly recommend the Eminger invoice to everyone. It is the closest thing to the window sticker that was on your car. I purchased miner in the 90's and have stored it away safely ever since. It will tell you excatly what was on the car out of the factory. I have attached a picture of my build sheet and Eminger invoice below. They are both great research tools. I have done some sleuthing on the build sheets over the past year and can try and help if you come across any unknowns. They may still be unknowns to me as well. No one has produced a publication to date regarding build sheet decoding.
