68 power steering pump ID
« on: June 12, 2019, 09:17:38 PM »
Does this tag look original?  Seems it should have a date code on it.

Coulda been a Shelby owner many times in the 80's/90's. Was always so close but yet, so far away for me......

Not one that typically came on a Mustang from the factory. It is missing a couple lines of information . Maybe it is a rebuilders tag.

Yea, when I seen the tag, I was thinking same thing.

Looks too good too new.

Agree that it doesn't appear to be the original tag, but I have seen original tags without a date stamp--though certainly unusual.
