It's more of a curiosity thing for me and a Marti report is not worth the money on a car like mine. I already know I don't have anything special LOL  Plus I know of at least one of those reports that the paint color description is wrong.

The buck tag should also have the color code.:)


Is that the metal tag under the hood that is also painted?

Color code will be on the buck tag.....and also should be on the build sheet that's usually stuffed in the rear seat springs.

Yes....buck tag contains all the build info for the assembly workers so they know how that particular car should be built.

Okay, no metal tag under the hood and I've already restored the car, interior and all, and unfortunately someone beat me to all the build sheets. I've been behind every door panel, under all the floorboards insulation pads and rear seat hiding places. Nothing :( its okay, i think we are pretty sure it's a 5T. Would have been cool to have found the metal tag since I knew all the paper build sheets were gone.
