Default 1960 Squarebird Daily/Monthly Production Info

For those who may not know it, I happen to possess a complete copy of the daily/monthly/total production figures for the 1960 Squarebird ONLY.. Unfortunately, my source was not able to obtain that information for the previous years, or the years after 1960. I can pinpoint to the day when your 1960 Tbird went down the production line. If you are interested, let me know by email or PM...

Hi Garth, I will need your Data Information underneath the VIN # on your data plate. I will get back with you after Christmas, but send that information to me, please.

According to the Production Numbers, Garth's 1960 Tbird was made on the 6th of September, 3 days away from the shutdown date of the 9th. Garth, I sent you an email, so please let me know if you received it. I sent it through the system to the email you registered with. I will save that info until I hear back from you.

Default 1960 Squarebird Daily/Monthly Production Info

Over the last several weeks, I have run the 1960 Squarebird Daily/Monthly Production Data against a number of our members 1960 VIN #. Several of those are also in possession of their ROT/Build Sheets! (actually titled the Production Broadcast Ticket, but many of us have called it the ROT (Rotation) or Build Sheet for decades). They were able to tell me the Date on that form so I could compare it against the production totals. Out of the 3-4 owners with the ROT/Build Sheet, ALL but ONE turned out to be built on the exact date printed on that sheet! Although their Data Plate Date was off by several days after that date... The ONLY ROT/Build Sheet that was off by 1 day belongs to Eric ~ DKheld. His ROT/Build Sheet has 08 18 on it. His Data Plate is stamped as 25H (25 August). However, according to the production data, by the end of the 18th they had not made his Tbird yet. His VIN # is 86,576, and at the end of the 18th of August, they had produced 86,232 Tbirds, 344 short of his 86,576 number. But on the 19th, they ended that day with 86,729, 153 Tbirds beyond his 86,576 VIN #. I do not know the reason for this 1 day delay, unless there was a production line problem, or they had to re-stock parts. So far, as I have said, of the number that I have checked who have their ROT or Build Sheet, the date on that sheet matches the totals for that Date in the Daily Production Data... Except for Eric's... Unfortunately, the very few contacts I had with FORD Wixom Plant Production Line workers have all passed away now.

I assume that management had full knowledge of the day-to-day productions numbers, the number of Tbirds they were going to build each day and the number they were short in producing or over producing. The daily production numbers listing I have show the number Scheduled for each day, and the number Produced. Usually, they were ahead of schedule by 1 or 2 to perhaps 10-20 or so cars. Occasionally, they were behind by a few cars. So they printed out the right number of ROT/Build Sheets to provide the line manager with so he would know how many to make each shift. I also assume that if they needed a few more sheets, they could print them out and get them to the line.

However, the Data Plate was a different situation. At some point along the way, they made a certain amount of them with the "estimated" date they would go down the production line on them.. Probably more than they needed for each shift. What they did not use on one shift, they would use on the next. It was probably more costly to stamp out a bunch more plates than it was to print out that flimsy ROT/Build Sheet. It seems to be the ROT/Build Sheet that indicates exactly which date the car was actually made on. I will post a copy of Eric's Rot/Build Sheet so you can see the 08 18 date and the Sched. Date of 25H (August).

Ray,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !!!!!!

Very interesting - should have known if there was a glitch it would be with my car - it seems to be a "malfunction magnet".

Hummm - wonder if that explains the '61 intake manifold (C1AE....) on my engine - maybe that's the glitch - ran out of intakes and had to use the manifold for the next year model. Car was bought new by my Dad so as far as I know all the major parts are original and I've seen a few more '60's with a '61 intake manifold.

I must have been on the bad list this year because I didn't get the time machine from Santa - was going to go back and investigate.
Oh well - maybe next year - HA!

Thanks again Ray !!!

Eric

Ray: Looking at this data info again, there must be a mistake on Garth's production date , post # 2 . Probably should be " 09H " ( August ) not W .
