Hi all,

I have just recently acquired a 1973 Cadillac DeVille and am trying to decipher the various codes. I have written down the info from the code plate in the engine compartment, and have found most of the info, but some is still missing can anyone help, please? This is what it reads:

ST 73 6CD49FWD067201 BDY
TR 331 44 N PNT
05B A52 EAY SMFKI
C

I think I know that TR331 indicates a dark jade green interior, and 44 a jade green metallic exterior. But what does the N stand for? A52 is apparently a front bench seat, 05B I am not so sure, and EAY and SMFKI I found nowhere. Also, there is a lone "C" on the bottom line.

Any ideas?

The "N" should represent the vinyl top color. 05B indicates that the car was built the second week of May, 1973, The rest of the letters refer to the factory options installed on your car. You would need the 1973 sales data book to decipher them.

I suggest you look for one on ebay. They shouldn't be terribly expensive.
