I was looking at the window sticker from my car, and was wonering if any knows the meaning of the numbers on the bottom line. my is 2A041 N RA 240 003480 01 04 02,
I think it has something to do with delivery. The last 6 number look like a date, shipping?, delivery?, built date?
Also is there a way , aside from the standard equipment listed, to tell a Deluxe from Premium from the sticker?

would help to decode it if you would tell us when your car was delivered & it's sequence #; also, have you compared the other numbers with the codes on your door tag? It does look like a date on the end and those window stickers are placed on the car at the end of the line at the factory so could very well be the date they reached the end of the line.

didn't answer your question on the delux/premium issue - don't know what's on the sticker but main difference between a deluxe and premium are the wheel styles.

traction control can be ordered on the delux models with the hardtops so that could also be a clue as it's probably listed in the options on the deluxe model and as standard equipment on the premiums.
 
I, too, questioned the numbers, and the dealer rep told me the last six digits indicated the build date (in my case 02 21 02...built Feb 21, 2002.) Can't be much help on the rest...
 
Perhaps someone who has their vehicle can see if the engine emissions calibration level (under the hood) matches a series of digits on the label. The 003480 looks like the build sequence number.

Assuming the Red Bird Dlx was built today, I may know for sure in a few weeks. Duane
 
Looking at my sticker and knowing my car got to the dealer in December 2001 I have the last six digits as 12 05 01...I too would assume this to be the build date.

The last six digits aren't the build date either because my sticker has 01 10 02 on it, and I was at the plant on that date. My car didn't come down the line until a week later. It went through final assembly on 01/18/02. Maybe this is the date the car gets started for assembly? How about Redbird? Do you have any info to shed light on this for us?

The window and body stickers are printed in advance with projected dates assuming production is not delayed. Also, units can sit around for awhile on quality hold before shipping. I can check the actual date most units were built.

redbird,
if you can check the actual build date, would not a Ford dealer service manager also be able to check that date when a car comes in for service?
