 I was at our local cruise last night & followed a  White `68 G.T 500  in , I caught up to the owner & we talked about his car. He told me he had a Marti report & it said the car was held up for weeks because of quarter panel issues & other panel issues but what I did notice was the Serial number plaque was on the passenger side, I thought they were all on the drivers side ?

68 dash VIN tag was located on the passenger side of the dash  Chug a Lug

A Marti report listing an issue with a quarter panel, now that is a first.

Mr Bill is correct. Serial number tags were on the passenger side in 1968. That also applies to over 300,000 Mustangs. In 1969, it was standardized to the driver's side.

Your new friend seems a little confused. The Marti report may list the scheduled build date and the actual build date, but no one can say for sure why there is a gap for a specific car.

I am not sure how you would come to the conclusion it was because of a quarter panel issue. That would not be listed on a Marti report
