Order a Marti Report. It will tell you all the options that were originally on your Bronco as well as the manufacturing dates and other details. Most people get the deluxe report.

I have the most popular Bronco aftermarket books.
Ford Bronco 4x4 performance portfolio 1966-1977. And A History of Fords Legendary 4x4 by Zuercher?
Any thoughts for more detail info?
Thx so much for help!
Those are great, I'm not a Ranger/Explorer person. A Marti Report like Slowleak mentioned above will give you the details particular to your bronco.
Slowleak can help you with the Ranger questions too

Odd VIN on passenger side frame *F13

I picked up a 1966 Bronco a little over a year ago and have been casually trying to get up to speed on all things Bronco. The VIN listed on in cab stamps and on title all match. U13FL7665968. It has a 289 (which looks period correct) in lieu of a inline 6. Do to this discrepancy I cleaned 50 years of crud of frame rail and was surprised to see *F13FL7665968* . Any thoughts?

I have this and can't understand it in full.

U15NL837381

092 W U150 798 C 03

510444

U15 is Wagon and N is 289 and L is Michigan Truck plant. Got that so far.

092 is 92" wheelbase. W is ? U150 Wagon body? 798 I have no clue. C is 3 speed manual?
03 is 4.11 open diff axles?


Curious on color (W for Marlin Blue?) and trim package. Going to be a mostly street use play toy. Planning on Explorer or Mustang 5.0 and AX15 5 speed. Any other help and info appreciated. I'm told it's a 66 but I'm also the 4th or 5th owner since it's begun it's "restoration". Has a 300 6 and original 3 speed which are both coming out.

Thanks for the help. Glad to know I was correct on my guesses on color and powertrain.
