0-0 is special paint.
5C is regular shoulder belts and 5M is regular rear center seat belt. The memo 134 is to give the assembly line workers special instructions for the car.
Do you have a picture of the tag and what is the vin#? Also, do you know any of the cars history? I have seen several memo tags before.
