Missing door tag

Hello,

I just purchased a 65 Convertible and it is missing the data plate on the door.
Is it possible to get the build date from VIN #5F08C317018.

Scroll down this link, it'll provide insight to your posted VIN#
Decoding Your 1964 ½, 1965, 1966 Mustang VIN - FastbackStack,LLC

It will not provide TRIM info, axle ratio, etc. If your car is "unmolested", you can determine the TRIM through a little investigative work.

Not unless you can find a "buck tag". What is the history of this mustang? DId the PO offer any reason as to why it's there? You can get a replacement, though.

At Dearborn plant, they built Mustangs in Oct-1964 with Vin's from 305300 to 341900. Your car was built before mid-month....I'm guessing about the 10th maybe. ??

PO had the car for almost 20 years and the data plate was already missing when he purchased it so I am trying to get as much info so I can have a door tag made.

Ok, what is the interior color(s), exterior color (signs of a repaint), the axle code can be gotten from a tag or by tuning the the wheels and noting the drive shaft revolutions.
You have enough info to have a tag created. Just know some vendor of door tags may ask for additional proof of ownership. Back in the day, I had to show my original door plate.
Good Luck...

The original interior and exterior colors I have and last piece of info I need is the axle code.

Thanks again for all your help.

OK, appears you're moving along. In the event there is no "tag" on the rear, then, it'll be a matter of rotating the wheel and counting the turns of the driveshaft. There are numerous postings on this procedure.
How about a few more pics?
BTW, when I purchased mine in the early 80s, it was rangoon red with a black top and interior. During my restoration 10-12 years later, I learned it should have a white interior with a Poppy Red paint finish. It had been painted 3 different colors over time.

Yeah mine is a Rangoon red (not original) with the white top.

Here's a few pics
