Oh yeah, Im really upset right now,

A man at the lakefront parking lot... backed into my caddy when he was trying to park. And now my rear frame is dented and scratched. at this point im furious, too many bad things are happening to me lately.

Hmm...doesn't sound anything like the newer SPID labels. Anyone here able to decipher this older stuff?

Even though I don't know much about the codes on an 80's car, something about those doesn't seem right...like a few are actual codes, and the rest doesn't really make sense. But I could be wrong...

yep, those are the exact codes, spaces between each set of numbers, and was in the exact place bro-ham told me to look. I dont know why there was single numbers on the bottom either.

Sounds like the metal stamped tag, which is body and paint info from the Body company, (Is it Fisher in 1980?)

yeah, it says body made by fisher on the top of the tag.

So, is this something different?

80 Model Year
04A -April (04) A=first week
6cd47- Cadillac Cbody coupe (D47)
9 Central Detroit Fleetwood Assembly plant
263 trim (usually this is 2 numbers then a letter ie 74C)
29L Lower body color
29T Fabric/vinyl top color if there was no fabric top, it would read 29u
A65 Seat option-split bench with center armrest

The letters at the bottom are plant use.

The body build sheet usually will tell you more like the options even the build date. I found one on a Buick of mine behind the passenger side door panel.

^^ Hey, thanks!

You wouldnt happen to know if there is a SPID label on my car, would you?

No SPID label. There WAS a sheet that usually got left inside the car, sometimes inside a seat, that had the options list on it but you can never bet on that still being there. In those older cars, it's easiest to just have the dealer print you a list based on your VIN.

I don't have an SPID label on my 85 FWB. Sometime in the mid to late 1980's (after 1985 model year?) is when the SPID label was attached. My 87 Fiero has just the label.
