Does the VIN in your windshield match the VIN on the driver's door warrantee plate? The '70 and '71 bodies are very different so I would think if the body looks like a '71 it's actually a '71. Does the VIN start with a 0 ('70) or a 1 ('71)? It could be the car's VIN was mistyped as a '70 by some past owner's DMV. Not too unusual. I used to have a '65 Mustang coupe whose title said it's VIN was 5R07G(and six numbers I forget). It would have been nice if it had a BOSS 302 engine but sadly, it really had a 2 bbl 289 (C engine).

Hope someone can help you more with your question,

That is interesting. I thought the VIN would be something like 0R, 0T or 0F. First digit is the last digit of the year, the second character is the manufacturing plant R= San Jose, T = Metchuen (sp?) and F = Dearborn. I have a '78 Fairmont whose VIN starts as 8K which is 8 = '78 and K = Kansas City assembly plant. I made the assumption the 70 or 71 would be the same way but you know what happens when we assume! *G*

Now I really hope someone can help you out - I'd like to know too!

Regards,

Dean T

Are you sure it is not 12/70 instead of 2/70? In any event, it is highly possible that it is infact a typo. Kevin Marti of Marti Autoworks could possibly get you the correct information.

It could be that the 01 is in actuality a 0T which would make it a 70 built in Metuchen, NJ. If you could post the first 5 or 6 digits of the vin or maybe a picture of the car we could help you figure it out. The difference between a 70 and 71 is very noticable.

No such thing as 1/2 year cars, model years change on the year only. What we commonly call 64 1/2s are actually registered (and were sold by Ford) as 65s.
