Can someone break this down to Barney level for me

I haven't had any luck finding a decoder for anything newer than a 72, so was hoping someone here has some knowledge on decoding the Body tag for a 74. Thanks in Advance.

74 =====> 1974 model Year
1BL69 ===> Impala 4 dr sdn
C ======> Southgate, CA assembly plant
079574 ==> Production squence number
821 ====> Nuetral cloth/vinyl
A52 ====> Bench seat

Thanks!!! That is everything that I needed to know, mainly the paint, since my 5 YO decided to start the resto job on his own the other day. I walked out the door and he had my finish sander in his hand on with 50 grit all over the trunk lid. If ya don't mind, where did you find the info?

Here is the book on Amazon. The picture on the screen is actually bigger than my book (at 1920x1080 resolution).

I saw it on there but reading comments on ebay it stated that there are no pictures in the book at all, is that true?

They have an Ascii Text picture of the tag for each year but other wise yes it is just 222 pages of numbers and letter codes.
