Re: [Chrysler300] G data tag decode





Thank you Rich,
This all makes sense. I wonder if T3 could mean multiple options because mine does have the remote control mirror, power seats, and the touch tone tuner radio with rear seat speakers. 
It also is a AC car with tinted windows and power antenna.

At some time in the past, this ad appeared and included some interpretation of a 300G 2DHT Data Plate:  https://www.usedcarspot.net/d/1961-chrysler-300g-2-door-sport-hard-top-national-award-winner-specta/kkedrtadstkddztqddka             or:  http://tinyurl.com/lvvr9ss           

 

Picking out and parsing the posted list from the ad shows this:

Another posting has the list below-referenced to a Sales Code list and is consistent with the list above—but more complete.  I recently purchased a similar 1962-65 “Production Option Code Book”, published by Galen Govier and I’m guessing the posting below came from a similar Govier publication.    http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=17607              The posting also has similar lists for ALL 1955-1961 Chryslers!  Check it out.  Correlation to letter codes on a Data Plate/Fender Tag are not shown.  Not all equipment on or in a car is shown on these plates.  The Club service of interpreting the original IBM build card tells much more and a Track Sheet tends to tell all.  All owners should check behind the rear-seat back for a Track Sheet which has all elements of the car shown.

For the data plate in question, the numbers on line 4 and under the letters on line 3 tie together with the numbers generally being the last digit of a Sales/Option Code.

A reasonable interpretation would be: 

Under SO = 0315 = Part of scheduling system—in date format = March 15, 1961—the approximate date of assembly (Beware the ides of March)

Under NUMBER = 1179:  the first digit 1 = Assembly Line 1 (?); the 179 indicates this is the 179th car to be assembled on this assembly line on the SO date.

Under BDY = 842 = Chrysler 300 2DHT

Under TRM = 833 = Tan leather seating

Under PNT = PP1 = Mardi Gras Red.   The same letter twice indicates the roof and lower body color are the same-as does the digit 1.  A two-tone car would have different letters and a 2 after the letters. 

 

Speculation:

The 1’s under letters N & V Could correspond to Solex tinted glass-all windows and A/C & heater.  Taken in option-code order, the N1 would be A/C and V1 would be tinted glass.  Tinted glass in all windows is often required for A/C cars.

The 3 under the T could stand for power seat, Remote-control rear-view mirror or Golden Touch-Tune radio. 

The second list suggests the 4 under the P could be a power antenna.

 

N1:       311 = Air Conditioning, Unit W/Heater

P4:       324 = Power Operated Radio Antenna

T3?:     293 = Power Front Seats

T3?:     383 = Remote Control LH outside Mirror

T3?:     423 = Golden Touch Tune Radio

V1:       441 = Solex Tinted Glass (all windows)

 

This can’t be a new question so I’ll bet others can clarify or correct.

How would the average person convert the codes on this data plate?

See
http://www.chrysler300club.com/rcmstuff/da/g.html

Not the bottom two lines of the tag, it is the
N1, P4, T3, and V1 that he would like an explanation.
