I have RUG AZ 011266
« on: September 12, 2018, 11:38:13 pm »
Currently in my 68 R-Code Cougar.  It just has such a clear VIN that I thought I should post it just in case it's out there somewhere.

We don't have anything registered that's a match.

Is that number on the tag or stamped into the ear of the case?  The VIN is stamped into the case, the number on the tag is something else entirely.  A 0 in the first digit is not a VIN for Mustang or Cougar.

That is what I was told it came out of, but I was not sure. Is there a Boss 429 with that VIN?

The number you posted is not a vin number its a trans tag number only. IF there is a vin on your trans its on the top of the front flange if nothing is there then you trans did come in stalled in an assembly line car. Clearly its not the trans that came with your 1968 car.
