I'm sure this question has been answered on here before, but I haven't seen it. Where would I look to find the elusive build sheet for my '68 coupe built at the San Jose plant in December '67?

The build sheet on my 67 is located under the dash taped to the wiring harness, you can see it if you look through the ash tray opening, another place is under the rear seat in the springs, happy hunting

My build sheet is not in either place! Has anybody seen my build sheet?!

JT, check out my '68 Coupe. I would like to see yours if possible. No comments from you Stuart!

I asked this same type of question back in January, I think. The conclusion I came up with is that at San Jose they didn?t hide them anywhere in the car.

Thanks for the advice, I'll have to go out in the garage and check around.
Jeremy, your '68 looks sharp, I'll try to post somes pictures of mine on here. It'll probably be at least tomorrrow before I get them on, because my photo software is acting up.

The build sheet did not necessarily come in each car, they were merly a tool for the assembly line workers to determine which colour coded pieces went into each car.( if you were putting rear diffs in cars going down the line, you wouldn`t be putting a 8" in a Cobra Jet car). Having said this, I have had several Dearborn & San Jose Mustangs, & usually found the remnants of a build sheet under the carpet near the drivers feet.They are usually destroyed due to the wetness from all the rain up here.

Most that I have seen in late 65 to early 68 Mustangs have been under the rear seat carpeting.

Thanks for all the input. I still haven't found it. If it had one it may have been removed by the previous owner.
