1966 mustang production date question

Hey guys

Im new to the forum. Ive owned a few mustangs over the years and I recently purchased a 66 with no door warrantee plate. Im in the process of getting a plate made and would like it to be as accurate as possible. Does anyone have access to the mustang production guide volume I that can tell me approximately when it was built.

Vin # is 6F09C212744

From my deduction this is what I have for everything else

Body = 63A
Color = Q. Original color appears to be a darker blue
Trim = 86
Date = ?
DSO = somewhere down south maybe Atlanta
Axle = 6
Trans = 6

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may want to look at the website "In Search of Mustangs" to see if there are any cars listed with VINs close to yours. You must register to see the lists.

Can anyone tell me how to register on the ISOmustang site. I see where you can add your car but not actually register with an id and PW

Your VIN is not listed in the Production Guide 1 but there are only fractions of the whole amount inside.

All orig Ford sheet metal has a coded date stamping. That could get you "in the general ball park". Areas that would have it, top fender lips, underside of hood, inside drain edges of trunk (where lid comes down on).
Others maybe able to explain better.
Of course hood fenders may have long been swapped out but trunk area maybe still orig sheet metal.

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!

"Trim = 86"

That's impossible for a 1966 Mustang. Trim code 86 was a Black interior for a '64 1/2 Mustang.

That code was changed to "26" for 1965 and 1966 Mustangs. If you have an ALL BLACK Standard Interior, It should be code "26"....not "86".

The DSO for Atlanta is "21". DSO=21

Do you have any original paperwork for the car?? The Original Owner's Manual Perhaps?? Or the Original Ownercard??

No luck. It’s been “restored” a couple times, so there is not much there. I have a couple title copies going back to the 90s showing it came out of Georgia.

I appreciate the info though.
