The remaining six digits are the consecutive unit numbers:
Aug. 1966 -  A00,000 thru A13,999
Sep. 1966 -  A14,000 thru A27,999
Oct. 1966 -  A28,000 thru A41,999
Nov. 1966 -  A42,000 thru A55,999
Dec. 1966 -  A56,000 thru A69,999
Jan. 1967 -  A70,000 thru A83,999
Feb. 1967 -  A84,000 thru A97,999
Mar. 1967 -  A98,000 thru B11,999
Apr. 1967 -  B12,000 thru B25,999

Jul. 1967 -  B54,000 thru B67,999
Aug. 1967 -  B68,000 thru B81,999

CLICK HERE to view actual production figures.

NOTE 1: The consecutive numbers for trucks were assigned just like Ford cars in the period, IE each assembly plant started with the same sequential number. Thus, the first truck in Kansas City production in 1967 would be assigned A00,000, as the first truck assigned to San Jose would also be A00,000. The unique serial number identifier would be the plant code.

NOTE 2: While researching these VIN pages, there have been many conflicting sets of numbers discovered. The numbers listed above are those listed in the 'Catalog of Ford Truck ID Numbers 1946-1972'. However, the Oct. 1972 issue of Ford's technical bulletin 'Shop Tips' lists the consecutive numbers for 1967 as A00,000 thru B49,999. The 1975 Ford Master Parts Catalog shows A00,001 thru B82,000 (starting one unit earlier and ending one unit later). In addition, reportedly the figures in the shop manuals are off some because they were printed at the beginning of the production year run and therefore cannot reflect actual production schedules. I've also heard from several truck owners who report higher unit numbers than listed here...so the research will continue.

   
THE SECOND ROW
