The specifications and designs described herein are believed to be correct as of the time that this book was approved for printing, but accuracy cannot be guaranteed. They are intended only to provide basic data regarding such matters as dimensions and weight ratings of Ford-built chassis. The information contained in this book is general and nothing contained herein is to be regarded as providing specific or comprehensive instructions for the completion of a particular vehicle or as authorization by Ford of the specific modifications, alteration or designs of individual vehicles.

Representations regarding the compliance of any Ford-manufactured incomplete vehicle to any rule, regulation or standard issued pursuant to the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act or the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act are set forth only in the incomplete vehicle manual which accompanies each incomplete vehicle. Ford reserves the right to discontinue models or change specifications or designs at any time without notice and without incurring any obligation.

Regulations such as those issued by the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) or issued pursuant to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and/or state, provincial, and local laws and regulations may require installation of additional equipment for the particular use intended for the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the subsequent stage manufacturer or completed vehicle alterer and the vehicle purchaser to ascertain how the vehicle will ultimately be used, if FHA, OSHA or state, provincial or local regulations apply and how the vehicle as completed will comply with those requirements.

Nothing contained herein is to be construed as a representation that such equipment required for the particular use intended has been installed on the completed or incomplete vehicle.
