Any Mustang Nerds Out Here?

Believe it or not, the 1964 and a half Mustang is titled to my Mother. My Father and I are trying to get it back up to speed for her now. One of the pluses is the fact that there are no shoulder harnesses on this ride. This to me is important for her recovery phase.  If you have lived through all of this the lack of a shoulder harness in the event of a wreck does not bother me.

So now we get to seat belts. They came in two flavors in 64-65 production. Delux and standard. I rummaged around the garage today and found these. 

Sadly as was the case back in the day one seat belt was cut. This is the Delux belt. Rear seat belts were a Dealer installed option. Date code of 1-64 would be correct for this ride! Correct color too. 

I can't decode this enough however:


This is a build tag written on the production line I found behind the rear seat. 

Any help out here?

  1. Keads, I don't know if the links will help, but here's two;

    Here's my deciphering, fwiw: based on the second link, skip the first line and the 814 on the second line, the 65A is the body style, the M is the color, the 82 is the trim. The first line and the 814 could be the rest of the VIN, just written in the wrong place, that's a guess. The DR BL could be dark blue. The PS is probably power steering, the F-AIR is probably factory air conditioning, I have no idea what the rest of it means. Hope this helps.
