    Default Re: 555 ford

    first is a letter c= built in USA, B=built in England the rest is the serial number run

    the unit number will give all the build date info - the 555, not a 555A or 555B was built from mid-1976 through 1983

    Year
    1965 - 5
    1966 - 6
    1967 - 7
    1968 - 8
    1969 - 9
    1970 - 0
    1971 - 1
    1972 - 2
    1973 - 3
    1974 - 4
    1975 - 5
    1976 - 6
    1977 - 7
    1978 - 8
    etc

    Month
    JAN - A FEB - B
    MAR - C APR - D
    MAY - E JUNE - F
    JULY - G AUG - H
    SEPT - J OCT - K
    NOV - L DEC - M

    Day
    Numerical Date 1 through 31

    Shift
    Midnight - A
    Day - B
    Afternoon - C

    example -Tractor unit # 2J29B
    means -
    2 = 1972,or 1982, or 1992
    J = September
    29 = 29th day of the mo.
    B = Day shift
