1960 Dataplate

1960 Edsel Data Plate

The 1960 Edsel data plate is 3-1/2 inches wide by 1-3/4 inches high.
Printed on the plate are patent numbers issued to Ford, and the name "EDSEL" to identify the car.

The First Line ("Serial Number") contains codes to identify the engine, model year, place of manufacture, body style and consecutive unit number.  The Second Line identifies the body style, number of doors, colors, interior trim, date of manufacture and other drivetrain options.
