I had a request for some information regarding this car. I know it's a Firesweep convertible, all white, with the white/silver cloth & vinyl interior. Anyone know what color the top is and what do the codes under the VIN mean?

No, the car is in a restoration shop and I think they are looking to make sure everything is correct and had reached out to Bob (59explorer). Bob was unsure of a couple parts of the tag, so I posted it here for him. My suspicion is that the "1" part of "XXX1" is the top color. Most '59's have just the three letters for body colors, so I would assume the extra digit is the top. Being "1", I would also assume it's one of the common colors like white or black.

The other codes I'm not sure on. We were hoping someone had more knowledge or paperwork to help us get it fully decoded.
