Marti Report Dealer Codes

It's my understanding that due to how Kevin Marti processes the information from Ford's database the dealer codes on most or all Marti Reports for the 66-68 High Country Specials are incorrect.

In 1971 Ford changed the first two digits of the Colorado area dealer codes from 51 to 76, and the 76 is what shows on the reports, even though the 76 did not apply in 1966-1968.

Attached is an example that shows the issue.

Ford changed the dealer codes numerous times since then so the codes shown on the reports are basically of no use.

A big "thanks" to Brian Styles for bringing this to our attention.

There are no 1966 Marti reports. Ford destroyed the early data base.

I have also found the dealer codes to be of little use. The name of the dealer seems to be accurate, but not the dealer code.
