What does numbers matching mean in a Mustang

<< < (2/2)

LilRedGT:
Is there a date range that is a "period date match" between the cars production date and the engine or trans ?
If so, how do I match the car and engine dates ?
I forgot to mention I have a A code car.

LilRedGT:
Where do I find the production date codes and how do you translate the codes to determine dates ?

66GTKFB:
I think I answered most of your questions via PM, but to fill in your last, the car's scheduled assembly date is on the door data tag. It may be up to a week off in either direction. If the door data tag is missing, an approximate date can be determined by the VIN.

The production time could run a few days to a couple months  before your cars final production day, just kind of depends on the part. Does the Car your looking at have a Door Tag? Also there should be vin number under the hood on the driver side top of the inner fender in a outer fender cutout about half between the shock tower and the  radiator support. If you can get the number of either it would help alot
