kcmufflerman asked me to photograph and post the bucktag for his latest '82 for decoding.

The "ELECTRIC-D" line had us wondering.

I swear he's collecting a full set.

I figured I'd try deciphering what I could on this.

177308 - 77,308th Mustang of the 1982 model year
61B - hatchback
F - 5.0 V8
MO - *
0599 - paint shop rotation number
1G - *
ST -
AC - air conditioning
04 - hatch with rear defrost
GT - GT trim
MOD - SROD 4-speed
05 - *
ELECTRIC -
-D - red interior

I went off previous buck tag decoding posts. The ones marked with an * I think I know, but don't see the code listed.

Jim

MO = sunroof
1G = Silver exterior paint
05 = type of hood (w/scoop)

ST and ELECTRIC are currently unknown, but I'm working on it...

Thanks!

I kind of thought that's what those three coded to, but wasn't sure.

ELECTRIC has shown up before then. Interesting. It's kind of a strange notation on a car that doesn't have anything extra on it that we can see that it'd refer to.

I had an '83 GT with 'Electric' on its Buck; I believe that it refers to Power Windows and/or Power Locks

As far as "ST", on my '68 GT 390, it meant Standard Transmission

This '82 doesn't have either one. The mystery continues...

This 82 has no rear defrost. The switch is not on the climate controls.

Kathy i am new to this group, i was wondering if you could decode my buck tag. There are some similar the the guy's 82 above but it seems i have more stamps. I have just uploaded pics of the tags, they are just waiting approval. The only ones i can't figure out are RA and the overstamped S. Not sure if you found out what ST and Electric mean since this last post. RA mean Road Abrasion?

Also my tags were visible and very accessable. They were attached to the top rad support, just right of the hood latch.


1st tag says "road abrasion" 3 times which i am assuming is an undercoating for the rough newfoundland weather LOL

2nd tag is as follows..
Mustang - Mustang
216618 - 116618th mustang
61B - Hatchback
F - 5.0L V8
MO - sunroof
0640 - Paint Shop Rotation
1G - Silver Exterior paint
ST -
LL - liftgate louvers
08 - type of rear hatch (w/liftgate louvers)
RA -
HB - Heated Back Glass
GT - GT Trim
MOD - SROD 4-speed
05 - type of hood (w/hood scoop)
Electric-A -
S - (S is overstamped into the electric stamp over the C & T, also in bigger font) -


If anyone can help that would be great.

I know on the older Mustangs (66-73), ST stood for AM/FM stereo, but don't know if it still applies to the 80s.
