What does numbers matching mean in a Mustang

(1/2) > >>

LilRedGT:
I am in the process of buying a 66 GT to rebuild. The sellertold me it has a numbers matching engine, trans, and rear end. I've seen somewhere that for 64 - 66 cars, Ford did not keep records like that. Best you can do is determine if th drivetrain components and the car were manufactured within the same 90 day window. Can anyone help clear this issue up for me ? How do you check this isssue ?

Soaring:
There were no numbers matching mustangs back then.  Ford used whatever engine and transmission that was available on the assembly line, and didn't care what the numbers were available. 

BlackShadow:
Look at the Vin number if the 5 digit is a k it will have a number matching motor. Only the K code mustangs had numbers to match both motor and body, other wise you are right LilRed only way to tell it the production dates.

I seriously doubt he has a K  code motor. 

BlackShadow:
You never know I just told him the facts and he is here to learn. The GT were either a A code or K code and he says he looking at building a GT
