I am in the process of restoring the Fastback, and I have a question concerning the body information on the door plate.
The door plate looks new, which leads me to think it was reordered, and I have the feeling that some information has been modified on it.
The car is stripped, and it look s as if the original color of it is the light metalic blue, it was then re-painted in Vintage Burgundy, and it now what looks like a Rangoon red.
My door plate gives me the J code, therefore the Rangoon red, but the paint was merely slapped on the car without stripping it, and I can garantee 100% that it is not its original color.
My question is: Is there any way to find out what color the car was when it came out of the production line?
My plate information is: 63A J 26 01N 71 1 5
I do have a 4 speed manual tranny, Code A engine, Fastback car, black interior
The warranty number seems to match as well, but doesn't give any information on the color or else.
If someone can help me figure out the original color of the car so I can put it in its original condition, I would greatly appreciate.
Thanks a bunch
