Bob now that is an excellent idea about meeting in the center of the USA, on along weekend. Wouldn't it be great to finally get to meet all the people we text with, on this site daily / weekly.The logistics could be tough but with enough planning perhaps we could set it up into four (4) quadrants of the USA.Say south west, south east, north west & north east. That way, no one has to travel a long way or more than a day etc. Heck we can get our own S&S going in the various areas HHHHHMMMMM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default welcome, Redneck !!

Congratulations on finding your ROT/Build/Broadcast sheet! Sometimes it is call one or the other of the three! That is a terrific find! Yes, the 7/20 would indicate the date it was scheduled for production in 1960. That would be July 20th, 1960, towards the end of production for the 1960's. Not that many of us get lucky and find their ROT Sheet. I am still looking for mine, as they re-do my interior. I think mine was probably found on a previous replacement of the seat covers and discarded because they did not know the importance of it.

If you have a scanner, please scan in your ROT sheet and post it for us to see! If it scans in to lightly, you should be able to adjust your scanner settings to darken it. You can send Cathie ~ coral a Private Message, or email her and she can walk you through the procedures. Since you are going to become a Paid Member, that is one of the privileges you will have as one. The ability to post pictures to the Squarebirds server directly. We would also love to see some pix of your Tbird!

If you would like to see what the codes mean on your ROT Sheet, you can find out by going here: Go to the Technical Links on the right side, I think they are. There you will find a link to the ROT or Build Sheet breakdown, and other technical items you might want to look at. Also, Automotive Mile Posts has excellent information on our Tbirds. You can go here, and then click on 1960 for all kinds of information for your Tbird.

Keep in mind that since yours is a later production unit that there were some changes made between the early units and the later production units.

You might also want to register your Tbird with the Send John the information on your VIN #, and the Data Plate information, in an email to him, along with a small picture of your car, and he will post it and give you a Registry number. The idea behind this is to record every remaining Tbird as to who owns it, where it is, if it has been junked, scrapped, destroyed, etc. Here is his email: Dont try to register it online because I think that function is still not working. He is great people and doing a fantastic job of keeping records on our Tbirds.

Congrats Rich!
you lucky dog! I am in the same boat as ROT as yet...but I still am slightly hopeful.
I told Ray myself I thought IF Coral's build sheet was still there when I got her it's long since been used as a rat's blanket, and is now dust in the wind....

If you have a scanner, you can make a copy of it, but please try to remember the sheet belongs to the the very least try to keep the original OR the (very good) copy In the car....
No scanner? any Staples/office depot/office max can assist - just make sure they understand to be CAREFUL before you hand it over, LOL

We've discovered that laminating is NOT a good thing to do, as it demerits the value of the sheet (just like FOID/SS cards or birth certificates - if the issuing party didn't laminate the item, once done it can be 'worthless'

I am thrilled to see you are signing up to be a full member!
You will be delighted with the SB car window sticker and formal letter you get in the mail - I know I was dancing in the driveway when I got mine!

I see already Ray mentioned the Tbird registry, a great thing to do... everything we can do to learn about our 'birds together is a good thing!

hum.... a gathering of SB 'birds.... sounds peachy!
