What is it??
When you open the driver door, in the jamb area, right above the latch is the Ford Manufacturer Data Tag, also called a VIN Sticker. It is printed with the Build Date, GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) and GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating), the VIN #, and all option codes (such as paint color, interior color, rear axle ratio, etc.).
Why do I need it??
First off, no full restoration is complete without one! The Door Sticker is often removed or painted over during the course of body repair or restoration. Sometimes, if the door has been replaced, the VIN Tag doesn't even match your Mustang! The best case scenario is that your tag is simply peeling off and you can still salvage all of the information needed to source a new Data Tag.
How do I get it??
Simple! Add the VIN Sticker to your shopping cart and check out. Within 24 hours you'll receive an email with a .pdf file of a blank door sticker. Fill it out with all the info from your old data tag and send it back to us. Your new Data Sticker will arrive in the mail in about two to three weeks. Reproduction Door tags are not available if your original tag is missing or unreadable. This information cannot be sourced by vin# alone
If i just repainted my car a different color would i be able to put the updated paint code on the new plate or would it have to stay as the original information? Asked by frank p.from sunnyvale | Comment10
Best Answer: These are just going to be the original information for the year range paint codes. Answered by Eddy D.from Lorena | Comment10
