Re:302-4V Code J

The reason that the VIN on the block is partial--is because when the block is spec'd for production, they don't know what type of Mustang that it's going into yet (coupe (01), or Convertible or fastback, (02, 03).

All they need to know for the block is: 8,R (1968, San Jose), and the six digit VIN sequence number.

When cars are spec'd, they begin with that 6 digit number, then it is decided what type, options, etc., will become that car as time passes. The marketing and sales during the production year will decide that.
