There is a very large class of people that own 65/66 Mustangs that, as far as I can tell, anyway, have been, for the most part, ignored entirely. They don't really want that 100 pt. show car that is so nice and was soooo expensive that they're afraid to drive it, they also don't want to make their car capable of achieving warp factor three. They just want this car that they dearly love to be able to cruise around smoothly and reliably, without having it dump them out on the side of the road or have it start making weird noises or belching out big clouds of funky-smelling smoke. And I think, truth be told, that this is by far the largest class of Mustang owners. They take their car to some technician when what they actually need is a mechanic, and this, frequently, does not work out very well at all for the owner. They don't want to re-engineer the entire car, they just want someone to fix what broke. These are the people that I am trying help out with this blog. Some problems require a little bit of back and forth, as in, "Try this." "I tried that and it didn't change anything."
" Oh. well, you probably need to try that." " I tried that and it helped, but it still isn't quite right." "Now you need to try this...." If you go to http://www.allfordmustangs.com/ and then go to the classics forums, you will be able to do that with a pretty hefty gathering of some very knowledgeable people that also happen to be very friendly. None of that ridiculous one-upmanship, no flaming or abuse, none of that stuff. Just good, solid advice from people that know what they are talking about.

Scheduled production date for Dearborn 64 1/2 Mustangs

Below is a list of the door tag data that I have collected for the 64 1/2 Dearborn-built Mustangs. If you are wondering about the scheduled production date of your Dearborn-built 64 1/2 Mustang, just fit your VINs sequential number into the series and look at the scheduled production dates of the cars with VINs that are very close to yours, and this will give you a pretty good ballpark estimate of when your car was built. Obviously, this can't guarantee that your car was in fact built on that very day, but, it would have been close to that, certainly close enough for you to order parts, get a new door tag, etc..
