FMX Transmision code
#1
Why do most sites list the Data Plate code as Z for FMX? I know it is X easy mistake since they are side by side on keyboard, but one site got it wrong and all the others are copy cat sites? Wrong on the Data links on here.

GREAT point!

I think you may be correct in that when the "Authority" document was developed, someone hit the wrong "key" and it was not caught during the editing process. Like most Sites, we tend to simply upload the "authority" documents for quick reference.

I have seen the same situation in other documents as it relates to other issues. The initial "mistake" is made and folks tend to take that document as "gospel" and do not properly vet all the information.

I will get with Barry and/or Andrew to see if we can do something about "correcting" the error.

THANKS again for bringing it to our attention!

I corrected the 1971 Data page to reflect X for the FMX code. I checked the 72 and 73 pages and the code was already set to X. Please verify that I corrected all instances and thanks for the heads up! We do like to maintain data pages that are as correct as possible!

There are descrepancies with the production numbers on many sites as well.
Does Kevin Marti's book, "Mustang by the Numbers" have some verified production numbers?
I would hope so. I'll be ordering a copy soon...

Thanks!

From everything I have read and/or heard, the data is verifiable.

In his "Introduction" to his book, Mr Marti notes that there "are bound to be errors" but that they have checked and double-checked everything that they could.

I consider the "book" a GREAT source.

I have stared at enough Data Plates in my searches that I used to be disappointed to see the X. Everyone we have had has been a C6. The last two projects I have looked at recently were both H codes with FMX and 2.75 open rear ends. As a kid I could decode the data plate before my dad even got his Data Plate Decoder book out.

By the way I am glad I could help out. Love the site guys glad you all took the time to do it.
