Thanks Dave. Yes it was metallic charcoal, sunshine yellow, metallic charcoal as new. And yes it has a torqueflight. But it is a Royal Lancer.
I initially thought it was a Coronet because of the 21 in the 2176 body code but once I looked at the 372 VIN, I changed that opinion to a Detroit built Royal or Custom Royal (Detroit Coronets were 351...)
You can figure out what the punches on the IBM card are and where they go. I started a thread on this topic:

I was looking back and saw your post.
It decodes as a Royal 2 Dr HT, deluxe two tone, roof, fins and lower charcoal met. and saddle sunshine yellow.
Interior trim gold and black.
Axle ratio, I don't know. Maybe 3:31 to 1.
