    Im excited beyond words, in dealing with a member and general conversation a car came up Ive had for several years, my canopy RR that im looking for some trim for in the wanted section.

    Well, the member here owned the car at one time and has found the fender tag. And is sending it to me. Ive sorta held back on this car because of the missing tag so its sorta like getting the whole car all over again.

    Does your tag mean that much to you? Im so anal about tags and I just cant believe that by luck the member here had owned the car and now im getting the tag back on it.

    Mine was missing. I prefer to have it but I`m not too worried about it or I wouldn`t have bought the car years ago.

    I've got my fender tag, not that it means much anymore though.

    I have my fender tag as well.
    It holds little meaning for me at this time.

    Mine all have them except the 68 Fury. You can get replacements made but I can't find the guy's info now that I need it. I actually don't care that much about the buck tags as I don't plan on running any of my cars across Mecum any time soon. They do come in handy if the car has been drastically changed and you have no other history

    Unless there was something absolutely unique about a car that I couldn't pass up, I would not buy a car without a fender tag. If the broadcast sheet was available and intact, I would accept that as a substitute.

    I received the tag today, cant thank the prior owner enough. So my quest to have some of the more oddly optioned 1975 built F-s took a step forward today with this tag now validating the car. I knew it was correct when I bought it and being an internet sale I had assumed it had a tag on it. My halo top runner has its tag and so does my pumpkin (Orange/Green Stripe) landau runner. And this car im posting about here is also a manual trans car which just make its all the better.

    Being a nobody I still feel the only F-s in the future that will sell well are complete cars with docs. I dont feel a 318 car is a issue anymore since a $1300 cast stroker kit makes a 318 a 390 tq monster.

    V4 coded A57 Car.

    I'd take the rarest, cleanest most documented Fbody and make it whatever I wanted it to be because I m not going to live long enough for it to be worth anything.

    Lucky for us you dont have a rare, clean, documented F body, too many are mucking them up as it is.
