  • Identifying your XR GT:
    • Finding the ID Numbers and Plates:
      The engine number is stamped on the front of the block behind the alternator.
      The Body Prefix Number is stamped on the radiator support panel on the passenger side.
      The I.D. plate is located on the passenger side radiator support panel.
  • Decoding the Body Prefix Number:
    • Prior to 1971 Ford used a dual numbering system.
    • They had a V.I.N. (Vehicle Identification Number) - which was the same as the engine number - stamped on the front edge of the passenger side spring tower
    • The body prefix and serial number - which also corresponded to the numbers stamped on the I.D plate - stamped on the passenger side front of the radiator support panel
    • From January 1971 onwards, Ford went to a one number system, whereby the body prefix and serial number, as it appeared on the Compliance Plate, was the same number stamped on the engine and spring tower, (which by this time had shifted from the front, to the side facing the passenger front guard)
