Format: Paperback
The above review is ridiculously harsh. Yes, most of the VIN and engine/trans code info is available on the net, but few of us have the luxury of a wireless connection when we're out in someone's garage trying to buy their car. This is a great carry-along to help give you good information on decoding the VIN tags and trim tags present on most cars. Depending on the car, this can tell you what engine should be in the car, what colors it was built in, options, the area it was delivered to new, etc. All very useful in deducing the desirability and honesty of the car in front of you. Highly recommended. From the hundreds of cars I've inspected, I've found the info in the book to be at least 95% accurate, which is quite good, in my experience.

Format: Paperback
Well, From the title, I expecteed to get catolog of all car part codes/ ID's. This book even went so far as to give a lame excuse why some models weren't covered. It ONLY has Engine ID's and basic VIN decoding that is widely available on the internet. Oh, yeah, a few transmissions were covered. Three words...."BAD, STINKY, USELESS"!

This book and it's sister book for cars from 1970-1979 are a must have for those who need their VINs decoded. It'll give you all the information on any American car which we know is essential for retoring that 1967 Cougar or 1964 Polara...

Many errors and omissions Jan. 9 2013
By Thunderbird Registry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are numerous errors in the Ford product listings. This is by no means a complete or accurate book. You should have a good basic knowledge of car codes before you rely on this book.
Excellent Reference July 28 2011
By Keith W. Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent reference for any 1960s car enthusiast. It included decoding information for all major numbers (body, paint, trim, engine) for all 1960s American cars. An excellent resource for documenting the authenticity of a vehicle.
