    I have an idea that you all might not think is good but I am going to put my label on a magnetic sheet and only put it on my car for shows, otherwise I'll keep it in the envelope with the "new car" tags that I display......

    How do we know what plant used what format/stamp and the time preiod it was used in to make a correct one? does NPD and Jim in fact know what IS correct?

    I'd have to agree that that trans VIN is suspect rather intentional or unintentional, most trans VINs I've seen including mine are very faint but readable when cleaned up, and this one seems too defined and has the wrong type of font as well.


    I would recommend that you closely check the 3 VINs on the car-even if it means asking the owner to loosen and pull back the rh fender, and take a close look at the engine block VIN too. Have you done a VIN search on this site to see if its registered? that may be a start....

    As round2k indicated a 65 without red line tires may or may not have a tire pressure decal in the glovebox. If it does have one it should be in the back left corner or on the door. A 66 has to have one or you lose a point. If the car has redlines it must have a red line tire pressure decal on the door. This applies to both 65 and 66. All that said it's only a one point deduction if its wrong or missing.

    OK, Then IF a car DOES NOT have dual red ring tires it CAN have the STANDARD decal.....you mention 2 locations....is it plant specific, time period specific?? or possible assembly line worker judgement?




    And being as you are a judge, you certainly understand points do add up, and all I'm trying to do is make my Kar as right as I can so I loose as few points as I can at the next show that I attend.

    ...and that a good title was gotten from one of those title companies that claim to be able to get a title for anything??

    I'm not aware of companies advertising they can do this. This would seem to be a clearly illegal activity.

    I think there is an outfit called Broadway title that advertises this type of thing. I'll take a look and see if there are more....

    Mark, The only real reason anyone would "need" the special Dual Red Ring sticker would be if they indeed HAD the dual red tires on their car-(I think someday when I start driving my Kar alot I'll go to Dual Red Band RADIALS)My Kar currently has the (incorrect brand) BF Goodrich 695X14 dual reds (bias ply)


    I'm certainly not trying to over-think this sticker stuff, I'm just curious-I'm not one of the folks that feels I must use all the stickers and decals that came in a package either.


    The Dual Red decal goes on the glove box door (inside) on the left side just away from the drink holder.

    I need to replace mine again due to the old one weathering.


    I have heard that some plants used stamps for the date and the "Badge" portion: I am not sure what would have been typically correct for my July 1965 Dearborn car.


    I'm thinking the stamps v/s hand written entries: IF that is the case does anyone have a date stamp including the year (1965) and some sort of stamp for the "Badge" area they could put on my sticker if I were to send it to you? I'd appreciate it!

    Mark, Yes, There is a small decal/sticker with info on the "High Speed" Dual Red Band Tires.......I'm guessing that either no one knows where the STANDARD '65 tire spec decal/sticker goes or IF my July 1965 Dearborn Kar "should" have it......MY guess is in the glove box itself, I've really never taken notice of it at shows, thats why I'm asking.


    There has got to be some criteria on the use of either/or sticker.




    Here are the 2 spec stickers for '65s

    Supose you suspect that your car's VIN has been stolen and used to build anouther car and that a good title was gotten from one of those title companies that claim to be able to get a title for anything?? how would you check this??

    Wow!!! Thanks for THIS picture, it confirms to me that the folks on the assembly line who placed these stickers were not real particular how they placed them, this is how mine looked originally.




    I guess I should clairify that I am trying to find out where the tire pressure sticker/decal should go......I understand that the sticker is a "may or may not have" type thing acording to the MCA rules......I have the dual Red Band sticker on my Glovebox door....just wanting to know about the standard tire sticker...

    So, We're back to gas again huh ZRay?? I agree with you about keeping a full tank.


    I'm wondering about the new "Ethinol formula" (yellowish-clear) Sta-Bil verses the original Red colored stuff....I have not used the new stuff yet, is it more compatable with the present Ethinol fuels??

    The Sunoco 260 was my gasoline of choice in my "original" K GT Convertible back in the early 70s, I always wondered why Amoco had "unleaded" "white gas" as everyone called it.


    So I guess the only thing now to worry about now in regards to our Kars is the effect the Ethinol has on the rubber parts in the fuel system.I am sure my 4100 carb that Pony Carbs rebuilt/restored for me and the 3939S fuel pump that Fred did both are fine, but wonder about the shoet sections of rubber hose at the tank and at the front.
