This is probably a very stupid question, but as I'm new to this I dare to ask anyway. What is an A-code or C-code or K-code Mustang?? To what does this letter refer to and where do I find it in my VIN ?
A-Code refers to the 289 4v engine in 65 and 66 cars
C-Code refers to the 289 2v engine in 65 and 66 cars
D-Code refers to the 289 4v engine in the 64.5 cars (right?)
K-Code refers to the HiPo engine in the 64.5-68 cars
T-Code is the six-banger
Well welcome to the VMF, this is a great place for classic mustangers young and old (im only 17). An A-code car is one that has a 289 4V, C-code is a 289 2V and a K-code car is probably the most saught after stang next to a shelby, they had the beefed up 289 4V that put out 271 hp (commonly refered to as the hipo or the 271 hipo). As a side note, all GT's either came with the A-code 289 4V or the K-code 271 hipo. Hope this helps and welcome to the forum!
