Some of you may not know what a History 999 Report is or how to get one but have read mention of it in a thread or two. So, here is all you need to do:

You must own the vehicle and have the VIN number ready to give them, then call Ford Customer Service(toll free) at 1-800-392-3673 and simply request a "History 999" report. There is no charge for this service and it takes a few weeks to receive it.

What you get is a letter on Ford letterhead describing your specific car, decoding of the VIN number and the date it was produced and options it came with originally from Ford.

It's a nice piece of documentation for your Ford car and they offer this service for any Ford Vehicle back to 1947! What they do is actually go back into the Ford archives and pull up the sheet on your car and then provide the information to you. You can give them multiple VIN's at once if you own multiple Ford vehicles.
