Well, this may be easy for some but sure not trivia for most I guess. Does anybody know how to decode this plate, it sits on a '73:

M 6 W B OGG

-AJ02NK51107-

M=color?
6=motor, which?
W=trans, which?
B=eje, ???
OGG= ???

Fascinating link, but still no mention of Stangs built in the Philippines. I'm really gonna have to knuckle down and do some solid research on this one day. No one outside of the Philippines seems to remember that they even existed, and yet I have seen one with my own eyes. I chopped it up for parts

The international Ford VIN decoder table that Dave has on his site is from an early Ford Fiesta book (Do-it-yourself series), that I have and of which I sent him all the information. You'll find the same on our club website at www.mustang-club-germany.de or for direct access go to this site.
This was an early 1980ies dated book. Unfortunately it does not list any Philippine facility, but I am sure there are way more codes that identify other facilities. I have not yet been able to source other reference tables, but I am sure I may find one in the future.
I would guess that Ford tried testing knock-down units with local parts as they tried here it over here in Europe for the Amsterdam assembled ones. I have only word of some people that remember those cars being built and some of the ANO.. VINs. I guess AJO VINS for Mustangs are as possible as others with a limited number.
You may try Kevin Marti as well, but I think he gave already all information to Dave in this matter.

Found this on the south of the border site.

In 1967, the Venezuelan Ford plant in Valencia (about 100 miles from Caracas) began producing Mustangs. These vehicles carried VIN's beginning with "AJ", and a body code of "01". Venezuelan production continued through at least 1973.

It also says that Mexico allowed the fastback to be made in 73 so that could be the 02 in the VIN
