The following pages show how to decode the Maverick / Comet VIN and data plate.
Thanks to these contributors and sources:
Karl Buchwald for the digging up the missing Comet information.
The International Maverick / Comet Club for the vast majority of the information
The 1975 Ford LM&R manual.
Dan Hines for the initial images I worked with and initial posting of much of the info
Although most of the Maverick / Comet codes orginally appeared on Dan Hines's site (Obsolete Link) and most of the rest on other Ford pages. I decided to present it together in one place for greater convience.
