VIP Periodical Fun Question for March 8, 2014

As promised, below is the VIP Weekly Fun Question for this week. Since this is the first question developed in quite some time, I have decided to make this a special "Periodical Fun Question." This means the first VIP Member to post up with the desired response will receive a $100.00 store credit with Ohio Mustang SupplySmile!

The Problem:

Please describe the circumstance(s) whereby two different (same year) Mustangs built during the 1971 - 1973 production period could have had the same sequence number as part of its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Again, the first VIP member to post up with the desired response will earn a store credit of $100.00 with Ohio Mustang supply, a nice Icon, bragging rights and the option to develop the next Weekly Fun Question for "regular" members.

Please be "sure" before you post up with your answer as "edited" responses will not count.

This exercise will end at approximately 7:00 PM (CST) on Monday, March 10, 2014.

Good Luck!

During the 1971 - 1973 Mustang production period, our ponies were built primarily in one plant located in Dearborn. However, from August - December of 1970, our ponies were also built in Metuchen for the 1971 Mustang models. During that period, Ford assigned some "overlap" of sequence numbers for the two plants.

Do the RIGHT thing.

Several thousand mustangs have the same sequential number in 1971. Both the Metuchen and the Dearborn assembly plants started the sequential part of the VINs with 100001.

Good question guys!
Please keep in mind that just because there have been responses posted, it does not mean those responses are the desired oneSmile!


Do the RIGHT thing.
Built at two different plants in 71 only before all production was moved to Dearborn and Metuchen Plant production ceased.
I would think if the car was built at a different plant.

351C 4V cc heads, 10.5 : 1 CR, 290 Herbert cam, Flat top forged pistons, forged connecting rods, Atomic efi,
C6 with Gear Vendor overdrive, 3.89 Tru Trac, Hooker Super Comp with 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust.        

Some Mod pictures can be seen at:

The Mustangs, while sharing the same sequence numbers, were assembled at different plants. One could have been made in Michigan, while the other was made in California. etc.

That's my story, and i'm sticking to it!
