My '70 trim tag

Could someone please help me decode my trim tag? I don't yet have the '70 and later book, and the suspense is killing me!



Thanks!

Hmm, that's interesting. The car made it clear to Ohio, now I'm curious where it was originally sold. It would be really cool if I can find a build sheet. Also, this car has a blue interior and it certainly looks original. Is it possible that the car was supposed to get sandalwood vinyl, but the factory installed the blue cloth/vinyl?

Yes, it is possible. Think about it, it is Friday afternoon, 40 minutes before the line shuts down. You have been stuffing interiors in cars all day, and it is hot, tiring work. The next car down the line has a sheet taped to it that says 820. You look over your shoulder. Uh oh, not enough 820 sandalwood to finish this car off. However, you do have blue that will go in. No big deal, most dealers won't complain. Besides, that blue interior looks good with the blue paint, right?

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

Whether it was a factory fluke or not, I love the blue interior! No complaints from me
