Good information. Having this info for the other factories would be great.

A guess may be the convertible top color - but it's just a guess. I don't know for certain.

Ok here is the working theory I have on that unknown code. So far it doesnt go over 31 and it seems to corespond roughly with the week, averaging about a few days after the coresponding week.

This is straight out of my spreadsheet.

The Willow run cars dont seem to have any unknown info on them.

Sometimes there are acceptions, but not very often. I think it may be the projected date they wanted it off the assebly line.

Yes please. Vin number is very important to the database. You can PM that to me, since most people dont want it public.

Thanks!
