CowlTag Help

I need some help with the Tag on the Car I'm looking at buying. So far I think I have the following right:
1969 Impala Convertible. Dover White, Red interior, Bucket seats and V8.
Have I missed anything important?

Its strange though. The firewall is Maroon. Anyone else found a 69 that the firewall colour was a different from the body?

The maroon paint is primer. Most are painted semi gloss black, but yours was assembled in Canada where they spend more time salting the roads (due to a slightly harsher winter) so it might have a different assembly procedure so far as rust protection goes than a car assembled in Atlanta, GA.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure the paint is all original (except for an attempted rust repair on a rear fender) and it matches the Tag. That Maroon firewall had me confused.
