I was trying to locate the build sheet in my 67 Galaxie, Under the passenger side seat I found what I originally thought was a build sheet, but after getting it out it looks nothing like anything else I’ve seen online. Can anyone give me a hand and tell me what it is?

I’m only 19 so I haven’t Got a clue as to what I’m looking at.

Don't recall one like that. Color codes were on everything to make it simple for line workers to grab parts by colors instead of numbers. It may have been the build sheet for the seat supplier. If you want to dig deeper, you may find a build sheet under carpet or behind inside door panels. Ford wanted the sheets removed from separate parts and disposed. But only would pay a 10th of a second to do so per 100 units. Workers just left them lay or crumpled them into whatever they were doing. I have found them in every location you can think of. The workers were not being lazy just practical. Glad they left some behind. Assembly is very hard and mind-numbing work.

Unfortunately not all cars received their build sheets. If anything, the percentage that did is probably on the low side. As for where it might be, locations include underneath the seat where you checked, below the carpet, behind the dash or even on the inside of door panels.

The piece of paper you found is likely from the seat supplier as 5851a said. Ford received bulk shipments from suppliers and they had sheets like that as well as tags on the deliveries.

Good luck with your car, nice to see you starting at a young age!

Thanks.
I guess I'll have to keep digging around, carpet has to be replaced anyway, so hopefully I find it under there.

Contact the Marti Report. He has every thing Ford produced from 67 to current. You will get everything from when the car was ordered, where ordered, build date where built and when and where it was sold. The color, engine/transmission etc. How many exact same as your car that were built.
