Greetings,
For the first time, after collecting 12 cars, I found a build sheet. I bought a 59 Firedome from the granddaughter of the original owner. After getting it home and some exploring, there it was on the bottom of the glovebox! Now, can anyone decode it? I would be very appreciative. Unfortunately it's missing a little bit. What would be the missing sections.

Excellent! Thank you all for the info. The car also has PS, PB, the Sportone sweep insert and a signal seeking radio.
