Production date?

Post by newbee » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:10 am

Hi, I am looking to buy my first XR4Ti, but I need to find the production date for the car I am looking at.
Does anyone know where I can find the date of manufacture for a given XR4Ti?
Thanks,
Ken

Hi Ken,

You'll find the build date stamped on the front of the left (driver's) side strut tower, e.g., 11 21 for Nov. 21st, etc.

That is, if it hasn't been painted over.
This is my car, and these are my people!
1989 XR4Ti 5-Speed
2001 BMW Z3 3.0 5-Speed
2015 Fiesta ST 6-Speed
2015 Edge 3.5 V6 Auto/Paddles

That's month and day on the tower John is speaking of.
Month and year are on the driver's door tag.
