  1. Thank you, this is great information to know, so my Avanti is about in the middle of the 30 Ford based cars built. My 2007 Avanti has a VIN sticker on the door, which states the frame was built by Ford in 2006, and the Ford VIN indicates it was sold as a 2007 as the 10th digit is a 7. BTW, I found a great web site to decode your Ford VIN number (https://www.vindecoderz.com/EN/Ford) Also, to get back to my original question. I finally did a CarFax report on this car to see if it had been in an accident to determine why the passenger airbag is glued shut. There was no report so all I can figure is that somebody along the way did some work on the car and messed with the airbag for some reason.

    Odd Avanti!

    I am building a 63 and have installed an R3 engine All I had to do to make it fit with the air box and standard body shims is use smaller/shorter front motor mounts, but I also had to shave almost 1/4 inch off of the sealing edge of the top side of the air box.
  3. Randy, I started this post over a year ago and am looking at it again after all this time. My 2007 VIN number ends in 19 so I have assumed it was the second to last car made during full production runs. I do know a number were also assembled and sold after the factory was shut down and I don't know if they had Avanti VIN numbers.
  4. I own a 2007 Avanti built on the Ford Mustang platform. It was involved in the recent airbag recall. I had the driver side airbag changed out two years ago, but they did not have parts for the passenger side at the time. Took the car in today to replace the passenger side and learned that the removable panels on my dash where the airbag is stored were glued in place and could not be removed. Has anybody had this problem? I am wondering if they glued them on in the factory or if some previous owner glued them down. Hard to tell.
