I thought that was true but was not certain. That's another reason to believe the visible VINs were not truly required in '68. Once the requirement did come into effect, it was required that the VIN be on the LEFT, i.e. driver's side of the car for most of us.
hello for Jay H 237 and Sick467 too...
so guys, I have controled the passenger dash side today and it seems there was not the windshild VIN tag. I have removed the dash pad (this is project car and will install the new one) and make some pictures. After several returns I have found two small holes (at the picture - at each end of the blue lighter), they may rest after the rivets but I guess they are too small for the rivets... What´s Your opinion? (attached picture of my ´68 Coupe GT/CS windshield VIN tag - for equation of the location).
Rivets there are much more bigger than the holes on the GT dash.
I have also some other questions... My ´68 fastback GT have all relevant ´68 GT equipments as is:
1) heavy duty suspension
2) stiffer front and rear springs
3) larger front and rear shock absorbers
4) larger diameter front stabilizer
5) dual chrome exhausts
6) GT pop-open gas cap
7) fender badges
8) fog lights with the interior underdash swithcher
9) AM/FM radio
- The GT "C" side stripes, can´t be verified, not visible at present time, and I dont want to scratch the external colour.
Front drum brakes are the mystery. I have read the ´68 with GT options come with front disc brakes. Is this 100% fact?
I have seen few GT and GT/CS during my US trips with the front drum brakes... is it original or some home made conversion?
Please, it is truth the predication: "All GT Mustangs come with the 9 inch rear end"...??
Thanks for any information.
