I am process of buying a '65 'A' code 2+2. Door tag indicates 5R09Axxxxxx and a DSO of 33. Strange that a car made in San Jose has detroit DSO. Why ship a car cross country to a city where's there's an assy plant? I notice in the
In Search of mustangs book I saw several San Jose cars with Cleveland DSO's so I suppose it happened a few times.

I've wondered about that myself but just assumed it was due to one assembly plant making up where the other can't. With only three assembly plants servicing the nation gone Mustang crazy, if San Jose had a bunch ready to go perhaps they'd ship 'em to detroit to cover a spot deficit?

Regards,

Any Mustang with "X"'s stamped in place of the consecutive unit number is clearly owned by a paranoid individual who is either terrified someone will steal their car's identity and run up horrendous debts in the name of Edsel Ford II, or perhaps simply fearful that some cutthroat restorer will produce an exact clone to steal trophies from them at car shows.

I've never understood the value of replacing the consecutive unit part of the VIN with xxxxx's either. People will reviel the "K" or the "A", so people already know it's a more valuable car, then xxxx out the part noone gives a hoot about. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

actually, I have the full VIN written down in my office at work,
but I suffered a senior moment and forgot to bring that piece of paper home with me. I will do better next time! LOL
