    Would you post the door tag, buck tag, build sheet, and owner card?

    Turbo RS was made in model years 1979 through 1984. The late 1981, and 1982, models were available only in Canada.

    Fox,
    Thanks for the inquiry. Dad is taking a look to see about getting some pictures. I also read up on some of your prior threads to get a better understanding of the nuances of the Marti report, door tag, buck tag, build sheet, and owner card. Is it fair to say that each of these tags/documents provide additional information about the car? i.e., specs that were not included in the Marti report?

    Looks like you are also the keeper of all the data too? Last update I saw was 2014 with 34 1980 Capris recorded. How many are you up to now? Glad to be counted!

    Beauty of a car and my thoughts are with you and your dad on his battle!

    My first fox body was a 1980 Capri.

    Yes, most of those sheets/stickers/tags have some information not found on the others or on the Marti report. Ford did not keep vehicle weights, accessory reserve loads, or spring code information. So Marti doesn't have that info and therefore cannot print it with the door tag image on deluxe reports, without getting the info from you or 'guessing'. As you can see on your report, all of that info is missing from the door tag image. The original door tag is the only place you'll find weights and accessory reserve loads. Only the build sheet and door tag have spring codes. The owner card happens to have the dealer sales code filled in, which matches the selling (and ordering) dealer number on the Marti report. The buck tag and build sheet each have their own respective rotation number (order of assembly down each of their respective lines), which will not be found on any other document.

    Thank you taking the time to share a bit of the nuances between each of these resources. As a researcher myself, it is always intriguing how information is documented, shared, and provides meaning to others.

    Your work keeping track of it all helps showcase the uniqueness for each. Much gratitude for your attention to detail and sharing it with us.

    Fox, Thank you for decoding our baby blue! Much gratitude to you!

    Any chance your database has a matching feature noting who might be looking for and selling certain types of cars? A matching feature of sorts? We would love to find her new owner and it would make buying/selling so much easier!

    Thank you for taking the time to type out all the build sheet codes line by line.
    Someday will have enough info to reprint my entire 79 build sheet. Is pretty unreadable.
