P8KB = 1942 Streamliner 8-cylinder built in Pontiac, MI

4701 = Production or Serial Number (there were 21,927 of the Streamliner 8's built)


42-2607 = 1942 Sedan Coupe - standard trim & finish.  (if there was a "D" at the end then it would the Chieftain or Deluxe trim & finish)

Body No. 3023 = ??

Trim No. 150 = ??

Paint No. 14 = two tone paint, Lucian Gray Upper, Beverly Gray Metallic Lower

Top 8 = ??

Accessories AK = ??


I do not have a 1942 specific book to decode the rest.
