This is one of these "geeky" posts about those little tiny details that I like to learn about on '65 and '66 Mustangs.

The original, assembly line Mustang rear valance had slotted, oval mounting holes.  I have found that the Ford NOS (service part) valances just have round holes and the reproductions are the same.  It is a possibility that the really early Ford parts had the oval holes, but I've never seen one.







Date stamping on original 65-66 Mustang rear valance.  This particular stamping reads "12  8  2C."  The "12" represents December.  "8" is the day of the month.  "2C" may have been a shift number.  The year was not used.

Like most all sheet metal on a Mustang, the rear valance was also stamped with a date.
