    Default 84 Turbo RS build sheet

    Fox Chassis, what are you able to tell me about this. I'm particularly interested in the A/C info. Hopefully you can read it.

    Here's a better size to read, the ink is faint on the actual sheet.

    If the car had A/C it would show up on line B4. Looks like that line is blank on your build sheet. Another way to tell info about the car is to look on the buck tag - it shows it there as well.

    If it is not on the build sheet, it's my money is that it's not on the buck tag either.

    I thought all along it was dealer air. I have the under dash pull handle that opens the cowl vent. Never saw that on a "real" A/C car, plus under the hood didn't look right. I wasn't sure if a blank on the build sheet meant "no got" or what. Thanks!

    How about sharing some pics of the underhood AC (and the rest of the car while you're at it).

    My 84 RS Turbo has factory air (kind of tough to see in this picture):
    1979 Indy Pace Car Mustang 302 / 5spd
    1982 Mustang GT T-Top 302 / 4spd
    1986 SVO Mustang - 1C

    I don't have any shots of the underhood yet. I just posted some shots in the "Resto Related" area of the outside. Where mine looked "off" was with the A/C hoses, not quite factory. The car is at my mother's garage at the moment as I haven't brought it over to mine from when I retired from the USAF. Moving cross country sucks. I have the room now, just no transport method. Yet.

    I've been doing digging of late and I don't know if Foxchassis ever did a decode on my build sheet/buck tag. I've got both in albums on my profile, but they're here too.

    Thank you! I love minutia and this fits the bill. My car didn't come with floor mats, always thought they had just disappeared over the years.
