Here's the tag on the doorpost of my 1959 Chrysler Windsor.

From what I can figure out:

0504 = scheduled build date of May 4, 1959

513 = ?

M511
M = 1959
5 = Chrysler
1 = Windsor
1 = Jefferson Avenue Assembly Plant

117752 = Serial number? 17,752nd Windsor built at Jefferson Avenue for the model year?

104 = Trim Code 104: Gray cloth and vinyl

I have no idea about:
G H1 J2 K L M1 N6 Z
A B C D7 E5 F

XKX
X = Ivory White Upper
K = Turquoise Gray Poly Lower
X = Ivory White Insert

Any insight on the unknowns would be greatly appreciated or if my assumptions are wrong, please let me know.

117752 - 17,752 1959 Chrysler Windsor off the Jefferson line (M511). 1959 was the last year each serial number prefix began with 100001. Starting in 1960 the first car off the line was 100001 while the second car off the line, regardless of make or series, was 100002, etc.
