Help with this chassis plate, please!
OK, time for a bit of a pop quiz..!
Here we have a picture of a chassis plate. The car, as you can see, is a June 1977 Ford ZH Marquis, hailing from the Broadmeadows plant. You can even tell that it had a 351 (T engine code), column shift FMX (R trans code) and the paint and interior I forget the exact description, but let's call them blue, which is close enough. Oh, and seating for 6 (bench seats).
Now, here's the start of the quiz. I have 2 questions:
1. Why are the plates the wrong way around? They don't appear to have ever been moved and yet every other XC/ZH plate I've seen has them around the other way...
2. Where's ADR 27A, then? This is a June 77 car, remember, so should have this ADR code, but it's not stamped there. To add to the confusion, it did have a carbon canister and other 27A emissions gear, before we pulled the engine out.
Can anyone help? Sorry it's not the highest res photo of all time, but it's all I took, so I'm stuck with it!
