My Dad landed on the beaches of Normandy France the first week of July 1944.

He was part of that great generation.

Miss him terribly....

This is what I received after asking them what I needed to to............


Thanks, You can get them from any grocery stores close to you. You can purchase $100 or $50 denominations - The total amount you need to get is $400, it should be four cards at $100 each. kindly open and scratch the back of the card and send me pictures showing the sixteen digit pin at the back of the card. I have attached a sample of what the cards look like.

Let me know how soon you can have this done?

Hi Bret,

Good to hear from you, hope all is well with you? I need to get four iTunes gift cards for my niece, It's her birthday but I can't do this now because I'm currently traveling. Can you get it for me from any store around you? I'll pay back next week when I get back home.

I got the message today...
They wanted me to go out and spend $400 on phone cards for a SAAC member.

I told them to go F themselves.

Appeals / Re: 1965 K Code Fastback Engine Question
« on: May 04, 2020, 10:49:45 AM »
The starter would be in the way at some point in the process but engines were shipped to vehicle assembly plants without starters installed yet.

That's good to know...
I wonder perhaps if they put a starter on the car and then assigned it to a vehicle...
At that time they would know the VIN and stamp the engine...
Makes no sense of course to take the starter off just to stamp the engine....

Thank you!

I've yet to see any VIN stamped in that location.

Normally the starter would be in the way...

Is there a possibility they stopped stamping there when the cars started being mass produced in Dearborn?

August 1st is an interesting date, as it was the first day of actual 1965 model year production at Dearborn Assembly. "!964 1/2" production ended the day before, July 31.

Perhaps this anomaly may have something to do with that - it is also intriguing that your VIN is 250,000. The highest 64 1/2 Mustang VIN listed in the Mustang Production Guide by Jim Smart and Jim Haskell, was 220310 built on July 31. So it appears they "jumped" to 250,000 to start actual 1965 model year production. Looks like you may have the first scheduled regular 1965 production Mustang to be built at Dearborn!

Also note the "SP PRO" stamp - could likely stand for "special production" or "special promotion" as in a showing car - does it have any other outstanding features? What is the DSO code on the tag? Car 5F09K250009, also built August 1st, is another HiPo fastback with an 89 DSO, which is Ford Transportation Services.


Car 250009 was also Rangoon Red with a red interior and non locking 3:89 rear

Am I missing something? Darken the mid tones in the block picture the OP provided and the last digit is a 9 and not a zero.



Correct...
It's finishes in a "9"

Bill...
Is it correct to assume that 250001 to 250008 could be Mustang coupes, Fairlanes etc etc...?

Bill:  I'm thinking that's possible..

However...
What would 250001-08 be?

They could be Mustangs or other Ford products.
Also...The DSO is "89" which is "transportation services"..

Likely a promotional car being so early..
And there were no 64 1/2 Fastbacks

Correct...?

Appeals / 1965 K Code Fastback Engine Question
« on: May 03, 2020, 02:37:01 PM »
I just purchased a 65 K Code Fastback

The vehicle was built August 1, 1964.

The matching number 289HP is included and the VIN is stamped near under the casting numbers and date..
...Not the usual front of the block.

Anyone have experience with a VIN in this location?

The vehicle's build date is as early as I've seen for a FB..

Thoughts?
