I'm not upset. This issue has been discussed here previously. If you haven't figured it out by now, we are all about trying to post the most correct information that we can on this site.

All I was trying to do was find out why there was such a big difference between the numbers from different sources. I have figured out that this site is all about the most correct information, as that is why I posted the question here in the first place. If the issue was discussed earlier and I missed it, I apologize.

No prob....do a search for Stew Jones and you can look at the old thread (s). As for the difference, I explained it in my post in this thread. Many agencies ordered solid color cars, such as your old CSP car, that weren't counted in those numbers that were posted in the article.

I searched under "Stew Jones" and this is the only post of 3 that has info on the solid color cars, for which I thank you. The other 2 posts only mention his name in reference to a specific SSP and 83 door panels.

You might want to do the same search over on the other SSP forum. We talked about it awhile ago, so it may have been when I was still over there.

Stew used to sell sheets sorta like what Marti puts out for the older cars. I heard he got jammed up and had to stop.

Stew got his info from Ford's archives through somebody that worked there. He didn't get it through any "legal" channels (i.e. paid Ford royalties for it) like Marti Auto Works did and does. When Ford found out about it they told him in order to continue, he had to give production numbers by paint and interior trim type/color for free to anyone that requested it via e-mail. That was done through his website, the Third Generation National Registry (thirdgenerationnewsandbeyond.com). If anyone requested a more detailed report (production start and stop for that body type, how many of the same car were made on that day, etc.) he could charge only a nominal fee (no more than $10?) for "time and materials". He stopped doing it maybe 7 years ago? There is now another guy doing the same thing. His name is Terry McCoy. He and Stew are associated in one way or another. I know they were both third generation MCA judges at the same time a few years back. Don't know how else they know each other. Terry McCoy runs at least one registry (1985 GT Convertible), maybe more. I have only seen the form to fill out to request a report from him, not any actual reports. He currently charges $25 for a report.

Thanks for that info, Mick. I ordered reports for all of my cars from Stew a few years back, which is how I got to talking with him about his SSP numbers. Oddly enough, he used to live on the same street that my mom did.

I'd be interested to know if Terry could help us with our VIN project (has any DSO data with what he has).
