    Posted: 29-April-2018 at 10:00AM
How many Torino owners have found their build sheets?

There's an ongoing discussion on the facebook Ford Torino Owners page about what the "T" number represents under REMARKS section at the bottom portion of the build sheet.

Anyone know what those various T numbers mean? Not all build sheets have information noted under the remarks section. We're kinda leaning towards meaning specific options/option groups that override the standard equipment/options.

THANKS FOR ANY ADDITIONAL INSIGHT!

Do you have an example of one you can post here?  What are people saying it means on FB?  I will dig up my build sheet and I think I may have one or two others that I can check.

Here ya go..... this particular one has T251



We are thinking it is an option/option package that overides a standard feature denoted in the build information above. Trying to determine if that is indeed the case.

Thanks for your help.

so IIRC any special paint code would get Black bumper fillers and maybe mirrors?

T251 calls out special color matching fillers

NOPE.... all S&H LE's (PS122) had the INSTALL RED SIGHT SHIELDS noted on the build sheet so T251 is something else and any non-stock color got SILVER sight shields.

Sorry Joe, I hadn't had a chance to look this up yet.  I have a few old build sheets I have collected over the years. Most are for the early cars and have nothing in that section.  The only one I found with any remarks was for a 1974 Torino which had "T124" and nothing else.
 
Based on what you've posted the T251 is probably a stand alone override package, like the T124 above.  Unfortunately I have no idea what these packages are.  Do you have the Marti that goes with that build sheet?  Since it lists all the options, maybe this would give us some insight.  I do not have the Marti to go along with that 1974 build sheet I have.

My 75 sport build sheet has T 724 under remarks and nothing else. Possibly the "Sport" designation that supersedes? Also, has LATE written in red crayon across the sheet.Found build sheet under flight bench seat.

The only thing mine says is "See Special Order" but I don't have one to look at. My door tag also doesn't list the paint code. It's blank.
