    Default 1980 Mustang turbo coupe Tu-Tone

    I am in the process of getting my car from the west coast. it is a 80 turbo coupe two tone. the only change done is an EFI turbo, 5spd. swap. I will be doing a Marti report soon. The owner said he could not find the buck tag. where they put in any other spots on the two tone cars? this car was a show car at one with the original owner.

    Car was built at the San Jose assembly plant and the buck tags are not in the same place at cars built at the Dearborn assembly plant. I will be down low on the core support, either behind the bumper shock bracket/bumper or slightly higher than that.

    I found the buck tag. It is not going to be easy to get to. Going to have to remove header panel. Will post when I get it out.

    Here is the owners card and build sheet. Please decode. I am still trying to figure out how the passed owner came up with the production number of this car. He said it was 1 of 119 all of his car show documents same this. I am adding some more of the paper work given to me. Thank you again.
