1FD — Ford, USA, incomplete vehicle

Fourth VIN Position - restraint system type code

Fifth through Seventh VIN positions indicate vehicle line, series and body type

P44 — Two-door convertible.
P42 — Two-door coupe, GT.

There's a lot of discrepancy as to whether the engine code denotes a Windsor or a Romeo block. I've heard all 99-00 GT's had Windsor blocks, but I haven't found any evidence of this. An easy check is to count the driver's side cam cover bolts - 11 bolts means a Windsor, 9 (I think) means a Romeo.
