    Well, it's not a S,

    I rode my 1988 K-75 to my first day on the job with Ford Motor Company nearly 19 years ago. It is my intension to ride it out my last day (hopefully 11 years from now and not sooner but,....).
    The K is yonger then it's stable mate, a 1967 R-50/2, and sees much more road time then it's Grandpa. Still healthy and my first choice.

    Does anyone have an '87 K75S (Silver wheels, Engine cover, trans, etc.) with the last 4 #s of the VIN higher than 0957? (build date 4/87)

    Or an '88 K75S (Black wheels, engine covers, trans, etc.) with the VIN lower than 0958. (build date 6/87)

    I believe that is when they made the change over for the model year for the K75S, but would appreciate any further info.

    ortme:

    You're the sixth one to check in from the "Original Litter" of US spec K75Ss (5/87).

    A few more and we'll have to have a family reunion!

    That makes seven of the "originals" still alive.

    And you got the fastest color to boot. (they don't call it "arrest me red" for nothing)

    Non Conforming

    I am the 4th (3rd official) owner of an "87" K75 VIN# 6216017 after the letters. I can't find a sticker with the build date. It was first registered 5/89. Can you tell me if it is infact an 87?

    K75S Original Litter

    I've seen 001. It belongs to a muckety-muck at Land Rover North America and is in excellent low mileage condition except for a brake fluid stain. It's red.
