Lots of times the stampings don't line up correctly with the labels so maybe it's possible the "8" belongs somewhere else? Got a photo?I believe my 67 has the original data plate. Maybe I should say the data plate looks original to the door.
Exterior color is stamped from the back M8.
M = Wimbledon White
8 = Springtime Yellow
The PO says the car is Wimbledon White, I say it looks to dark to be Wimbledon White and not yellow enough to be Springtime Yellow. So IDK, its a mystery.
Im in Georgia, my car has a Atlanta DSO, Im sure it has changed hands many times and had extensive work done on it over the years.
Everything else on the data plate matches up.
