Question Classic Mustang "A" and "C" Codes. What do these different codes mean?

I am looking for a '67 or '68 mustang convertable with a manual transmission. In my research through many ads the information often includes that it is a "C" code or some other code. Where can I find out what these different codes mean?

Thanks,
Fred

Hello. That is refering to the 5th digit of the vin of the car, which is the engine code.
U=170 cid 6cyl
T=200cid 6cyl
C=289 cid V8/2bbl
A=289 cid V8/4bbl
K=289 cid V8/4bbl/ high perfomance/271 HP(<---- That's a good one )
F=260 cid V8/2bbl for cars built prior to sept. 64
F=302 cid/2bbl/ cars built after aug.67
J=302 cid V8/ 4bbl
X=390 cid V8/2bbl
S=390 cid V8/ 4bbl/ big block
R=428cid cobrajet/4bbl/ram air
Q=428 cid cobrajet/4bbl/non-ram air/begining aug. 68 ( 69 model car)
That's what that means. Hope that helps.

If you mean the FIRST digit being an A, that'd hint at the car being assembled in the Amsterdam based Ford Factories.

For a US based ad, I doubt that'd be the case (specifically since this A-code Mustang is a rare breed, and re-importing it back to the US is kinda... excessive).
