Hi everyone, I finally got around to getting the fender tag off my '61 Phoenix to strip the paint and be able to read it. Now I need some help decoding it.

I'm pretty sure the bottom row is as follows, but correct if I'm wrong:
Schedule Date - Nov 3, 1960
Body - 532 - Dart V8, Phoenix, 2dr Hardtop
Trim - 425 - Red interior
Paint - WW1 - Snow White Monotone Paint

I'm am looking for help with the "Letter" options on the tag.

A3
K3 - Torqueflite Transmission??
V2
Y3

I'm also interested to find out if the "9275" I found written on the fender tag under the paint means anything.

Thanks!!

What is the plant your car built at?
***OR***
What is the fourth character of your car VIN?

The letter codes change depending of assembly plant…
There were six plants had been building the ’60 Dodge (including one in Canada)

In my humble opinion and judging the narrow digits below letters on the data plate, I guess this is Hamtramck-built car;
Your VIN should be started at 5312…

If so,
A3 = 283 = Torqueflite Transmission;
K3 = 303 = Accessory Group 303 includes: Light Package – Back Up, Trunk, and Parking Brake Lights; Windshield Washer and Variable Speed Wipers;
V2 = 382 = Left Outside Rear View Mirror, Manual Control
Y3 = 413 = Rear Quarter Stone Shields ***OR*** Swivel Seats

Broadcast Sheet of your car would be helpful…

You are also correct that my VIN starts with 5312. Now I have an idea what I need to get the car to match the tag. Now just to wait for Stellantis to get back to me with the build card.

Thanks for the help!!!
