There is a MM/YY format on the sticker in the driver's door jamb, then there's the tag on the radiator core support that has the month and day (can't remember if it's MM/DD or DD/MM).

Any others? I might have a problem. My door jamb says 10/93. Vin matches title, title says 91. Checked it when I purchased it. Either that or my friend is an idoit and cant read. Vin decoded is for 91 also

Only other place I can think of would be on the build sheet (it has the VIN on it), provided it is still in your car. It is usually found in the trunk under the carpet near the right wheel well. Others have found it under the rear seat cushion.

Does the VIN match between the title, window plate and jamb sticker?

Both vin tags and title match just the build date is different. WTF?

Just rechecked vin and it comes up correct. 2 sources got everything right.

What build date is on the core support tag? Near the center, MMDD format (checked); is the month even the same?

Also on the core support tag is the sequence number of the car, top right. Check that against the last six in the VIN.

Is it on a separate tag or on the same tag as the VIN?

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.

The "Born on" dates are Stamped Yellow - on the radiator core support .. look for the yellow stamp and it will have the actual day.
