How can I request a Technical Data Sheet for my Ford?

To request a Technical Data Sheet, contact the Customer Relationship Center at 1-800-392-3673 or select our Live Chat option.

Technical Data Sheets are provided for vehicles being imported and exported to and from the U.S. or Canada and were built for North American markets. Technical Data Sheets are available for vehicles with model years from 1967 to current. A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) will be required to place an order.


  • VINs for vehicles with model years up to 1981 are 10 or 11 digits long. For model years 1982 to present, VINs are 17 digits long.
  • The location of the VIN may vary based on your vehicle's model year.
  • Technical Data Sheets are not available for Canadian residents. If you reside in Canada, are in the process of exporting a Canadian vehicle to the United States, and require documentation, you can contact the Canadian Customer Relationship Center at 1-800-565-3673 to request a supporting Safety and Emission Compliance Letter.

How long does it take to process the request?

  • 1991 or newer model-year vehicles: Technical Data Sheets can be emailed within 5 business days of ordering.
  • 1967-1990 model-year vehicles: It may take 4-6 weeks to retrieve the information.
