69 Cutlass Surpeme Data Tag Help, Please

Recommended Posts

I have owned my 69 Cutlass Supreme 2dr Holiday Coupe since 1986 (I was 15).  I had the car repainted at the time, but not totally sure if I had it painted the correct shade of gold or not.  I believe it to be Topaz Gold Metallic, code 65 on the tag.  also, I'm needing help with the correct interior color.  I haven't been able to find any info anywhere yet that would give me the correct color.  Anyway, any help with the TAG numbers below would be greatly appreciated.  I know that the old girl was assembled during the 5th week of April in 69 at the Freemont Assembly plant.  That's about as far as I have been able to get so far.

 

ST  69-34287  BF 06478   BDY

TR  974   B80         65  65    PNT

       04E     235681   820009

Fremont did things differently from the other assembly plants but that one doesn't appear to be as "out there" as some Fremont plates I've seen.

 

Paul, do you or Joe P have your trim books handy? Mine are packed up. Right now I'm thinking 974 is gold vinyl.
