Hello. Thanks for accepting me. I wanted to know the production number of a 1999 Mustang 35th anniversary edition and also the value to help me decide if it is worth fixing up.
The doortag may yield further information, but on the VIN: 1FAFP4048XF120285
1FA = Ford USA Passenger car
F = Active safety belts all positions, second generation airbags
P40 - Two-door coupe
4 = 3.8L, EFI, six cylinder
8 = VIN Check digit
X = 1999 modelyear
F = Dearborn MI
120285 = Production sequence number
So the 20285th Mustang produced in the 1999 run.
Considering there were 73180 units of this configuration totally produced, this one is probably from around April of 1999 (doortag should indicate the date more specifically).
The number of people that think they have a 25th Anniversary model in 1989 are mistaken just the same. Actually there was no Anniversary model for 25 years, all Mustangs got the 25 years dash plate that were built from April 17th 1989 to end of production 1990. My car was built on last day of 1990 production (about 70 units under total production for the year) and has the same 25 years badge.
