What I know is written in bold:

CARE LINE(Z) Mustang line
PWR BRKS-PWR STRG-MV COL-DISC BRK(3) Front Disc Brakes
SPRINGS FRONT(X) REAR(Z) most likely equals the suffix to the shock number
SHOCK(G) most likely equals the suffix to the shock number
RADIATOR(Y) Manual trans radiator
DRIVE SHAFT(M)
TRANS IGN HB CLUTCH EXHAUST GT GROUP REFLECTOR(6) GT equipment group
ENGINE(A) 225 hp 4V 289
TRANS(5) 4 speed trans
TIRES(C) TYPE(1) 6.95x14 tires (type C), White sidewall Rayon
MLDGS LUGG RACK DECORE GP TAILGATE(X) you sure this is an 'x'? Does the car have deluxe interior? If so, this code normally would be for deluxe interior, code 5
OPTION SEAT DELUXE STG WHL(8) code 7 is usually for deluxe wheel, not sure why this would be 8

THIRD LINE
RADIO RR SPKR RR ANT STEREO TP (2) AM radio
BATTERY HED LAMP CVR DOME LAMP(1) optional battery, size 24F
SPEED O GEAR (G) most likely equals the suffix to the speedo gear or color
VINYL ROOG STG CMPT(2) seems out of place??

ON THE FIRST LINE ROT(652) order of car on assembly line
TYPE ORDER(1) retail order, ordered by customer

ONE OTHER THING ON SECOND LINE
CAR LINE(Z) same as above

A scan would be nice...

Mr Turner Thanks for the quick response. I can not scan my build sheet as it is complete but very fragile.I am also pleased to find my car is a REAL GT. that means alot to me.In referance to the "MLDGS LUGG RACK DECORE GP TAILGATE(X) It is definetly an X in that box and according to my door tag I have a standard interior. Also the box "OPTION SEAT DELUXE STG WHL(8) Is also definetly an 8 in that box. Again the most important item is the GT group. One other question since you are a judge., I purchased the factory racing stripes available as a dealer option in the box(paid alot) as long as I keep the box during shows,will I have points taken off for having the stipes on my car? Part # C5ZZ19E504-B.

Again thank you for all your help.

I would assume your car came equipped with the optional wood grain wheel from the factory then. Not sure about the MLDG LUGG.. might be for a luggage rack?

Yes, the racing stripe would be accepted, but don't go overboard on the dealer accessories. Try to keep it looking somewhat "normal". These cars start looking "fake" when they have tons of dealer accessories added to them.

Thanks again,and No this is the only option I want,as I agree,I have seen many way overdone cars,and I want mine to be as it was in '66 short of those stripes that give a little personality.
Would you think the optional wood grain steering whell came with my car? the one in it now looks real good but hase a small seperation which I guess is normal in the outer rim. I rather not put a wood grain wheel on if it is not correct.
One thing I do know the car had been hit real hard on the drivers side quarter a long time ago as the repair was very old school, as I have found during the resoration. again thanks, John Greenage

These are always cool to look at. I have my original build sheet as well, but it's not so unique, just a 289 2V C4 car.

I found 2 build sheets under my carpet. One was not for my car but somehow ended up there. I forgot where I stashed them. They look like Dead Sea scolls.

Yeah all 3 of mine are Metuchen cars and I've only found one build sheet. MyFirstCar was not so special off the line 55 years ago this month, but I bet it's the only one like it in the world now!
