1966 trim code

I have a 1966 396 conv. i have been breaking down the trim codes and the TR say 859-A. according to 1965-1969 Chevrolet by the numbers book i have been using it says that 859 saddle (which it is) was not an option in 1966 but was an option on 1965. is this a common thing to happen.
the body build date is 12E made 5th week of DEC ,but the paint is M-6 (Aztec Bronze) only offered in 1966. can anyone help on this. sound strange but could have been stamped wrong for the interior color code.

I recently heard that in March of 66, the saddle bucket seat interior was discontinued and a fawn bucket seat interior became available. Is your car an SS? Warren

I did not think you could get a cloth interior on a convertible, bad idea if you forget to put the top up. I would re-check your interior codes.
