For one thing the "172" code on the plate on the rad support denotes "Anthracite Grey Metallic" for original paint colour. We need some more pics
Here is the email address I used for my data card:

While we're at it:

410 = Electric Sun Roof
494 = "California Version" (emissions related)
518 = Becker Mexico Radio
531 = Automatic Antenna
581 = Automatic Climate Control
592 = Heat Insulating Glass
639 = Elimination of Warning Triangle

I think that's it for the codes on rad support. Your Data card will have all the codes complete.

Wow thank you so much guys, that's awesome!!!

Still working with the seller to resolve a missing title issue, but hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have this car home and can get started working on it

Just curious on how this would work if the title is missing? Then can you only just buy it with a bill of sale but not register it and thus it effectively renders it a parts car?

It's not a pretty situation. I really can't buy the car without the paperwork being at least somewhat in order. In NJ at least, you can't even scrap a car without a title so it would be dicey to take this one.

The seller is trying to resolve it on his end and at the same time I'm going to take a shot at using the Vermont "loophole" which allows you to register a car in Vermont, even as a non-resident, without a title and then you take that registration to the DMV here in NJ and they *might* give you a title.

It's a nightmare scenario

In most states, the seller can just request a duplicate title.
