Wait! So you are saying it is the 'blue' one (and not the orange one)?

1964 1/2 - 1966 / Warranty Card Holder location?
« Last post by sglbbs on Today at 04:20:17 PM »
Found this in some paperwork today which is the dealer where the car was purchased. Looks like it was once screwed on somewhere. Was there a common place for these to be installed?

Since you are making a gear change, why not simply leave off the tag that's correct for the new gear?  Keep the old tag with the old gear set for future owners.

Thanks for the comments.  According to the Marti Tag Book the ' 901 ' indicates the ' axle plant manufacturing code ' and goes no further explaining it other than to say all mustangs had a 900 series code.  ................

I don't have those all figured out (not allot of questions for the information) but there are a bunch of different numbers used. For example I have two examples of 3.00 8"  from 66 with "931" as that code so its not an easy task and may have changed during production year making it even more confusing. Possibly why Kevin didn't include a break down especially considering all the years and combinations

Finishing my tangent on date codes, all of the supports and other pieces in the fender all have dates within approximately 6 weeks prior to the fender lip date. A dip did not result in any resolution on the one fender, missing its month date of 1.

Although this is an early March SJ car, here is a pic of the complete underside:

Please note the car was undercoated sometime in its life.

In case you wonder how well the dip process works, I very pleased to have this result:



DP74LP will be sloshed around on surfaces not visible.

I would install the original tag and not worry about matching it to what can't be seen.  If you change the tag, then are you going to change your door warranty plate also?

+1

Just take the receipts for the new hardware, write a note when installed along with keeping original tag installed and stuff in the folder with the other paperwork for the car. 

+2 You should be satisfied with the gear change & TL, keeping records of the change is a good idea also.

Are there variations of the retainer?...note the one in my photo in the above post compared to the one in Marty's photo...the hole size on mine is slightly smaller and the flange bends the other way...it came from my 68 GT350...I assume it's factory but I have no way of knowing.

Here's another one from a 67 San Jose car that just happens to be in my shop...it looks like the one in Marty's photo.
