Is it possible, using your VIN, to find out exactly what your Bronco was built with at the factory?

Just found the upper left corner of my build sheet under the rubber mat directly under the front bench seat. It was taped down with some black duct tape. Have no idea where the rest of it could have gone. It appears this was the first time the rubbber mat had been pulled up under the seat. I did get the one from Ford Customer Service.

How ironic can it get , I just NOW removed my center console and saw the build sheet right there thru the 2" hole in the carpet, closest to the steering wheel. What an interesting place to put it, huh?......

YO B!
Locations vary because it depended upon who threw it in the Bronco on the production line vs. those who took time to place it same place for 18 years
Here is a compilation:

under the driver's or passenger side carpet
in the fiberglass top hidden behind the rear trim piece, driver's side in a 79 by Ziggy
under my carpet on the right side in the back in a 92 by M. Cardholder

under the carpet directly behind the front passenger seat, Under the cardboard spacer sheet/heat shield in an 88 by Dustball

under the drivers side of your front seat between the seat springs and the cushion in an 86 F 150 by Hoxviii

located underneath the carpet under the drivers seat and another in the back end underneath the carpet in an 88 by Xris

Ive found them in the back seat front seat Passenger floor Board and head liner...Gently feel your back seat for paper under the vinyl...Same with the back and then under the seats...Possibly under passenger carpeting rubber mat in a 78 by F1rocco

i had alot of trouble pulling my carpet out thanks to the poor condition my truck is/was in

Secret decoder ring?


I dunno- the build sheet didn't tell me much and I don't really understand why people are looking for them since its all gibberish.
