    Thanks for the door tag and the re-post of the window sticker Sometime even if you know where to look for the buck tag it's hidden.

    Between the hood latch and the driver side headlamps, attached to the front face of the radiator 'core' support (frame that radiator bolts to) you'll see two brackets. The bracket on the left holds a line from the power steering pump. The L-shaped bracket on the right holds the header panel (frame that headlamp buckets attach to) to the rad support. If you peek behind those brackets the buck tag may be there. The buck tag is attached to the core support before anything else.

    Probably for two reasons...

    1. They dont know all of the info for each VIN's door tag because Ford didn't save gross vehicle ("GVWR" numbers) and axle weights ("GAWR" numbers), accessory reserve loads ("F" and "R" numbers), special paint codes, or spring codes (last four of the "TR" code).
    2. Sometimes codes change in the middle of the year, or they're unique for one year. Ford just did these things but didnt note it anywhere in their books, so obviously Marti Auto doesn't know and therefore doesn't know to do it exactly like Ford did. Some examples:
      • "A/C" code changed use in the middle of the 1983 model year
      • lower tu-tone paint code wasn't on 1979 tags
      • vinyl roof ("VR") code was repeated on the "EXTERIOR PAINT COLORS" line in 1979.
      • sunroof ("S") code was unique in 1980 ... sunroof was "B" instead of "C" like every other year, and NO sunroof was "0" (zero) instead of blank like every other year.

    Other people that have collect hundreds or even thousands of samples of different door tags, me included, have sent Kevin Marti specific years upon request. I'm guessing that Marti Auto is probably making this request now, from all new deluxe report orders, as this would increase the pool of potential copies of door tags so they could study and document the changes.
