If you're referring to the numbers/letters on the cowl tag, that's pretty much anybody's guess. By that I mean that they were probably more factory assembly information. Remember, there were only a couple/few body styles of cars and they each had basic trim that was the same on all. It's been my understanding that if you had access to factory "inside" info or the sales sheets, etc. that the salesmen had, you might be able to find out what they meant. There were things like "Groups" of items that carried codes that would be filled in at purchase time, and I have actually seen references to "Interior Groups," "Lighting Groups," etc. in old sales literature. I've never been able to find much better information on the topic. Perhaps a separate Accessory Brochure might define some things that would relate to (match) what's stamped on the tag.

Now, the color codes are actually something you can look up and find info on. There were even codes on early cars for such things as two-tone, pin stripes colors, etc.
