702 = "parts to eliminate on SKD vehicle exported to Vietnam"
Possibly a partially or completely (CKD) knocked down vehicle when new.
(Although this is just a guess).
Knocked down means some parts, ie, battery, tires, glass, etc have to be produced and installed locally.
If the vehicle came"used" into the USA from from Canada via Japan this is what may have happened here. ( have been to Peru many times and learned that there used to be a Dodge Assembly Line in Lima, and thousands of CKD Dodge Coronets were assembled there and sold, from about 1966-1979, the last ones called Monaco's, and many still ply the roads there today, mostly used as long distance taxicabs, equipped usually with the basic 225ci 6 cylinder and manual transmissions. They are called "Collectivos" and the owners typically stuff them to the gills with passengers and luggage and haul them from the city to the Andean villages and vice versa)
Maybe this one you got was once a taxicab in Saigon or Hanoi?

My W124 is that Smoke Silver 602. It's an original Japanese delivered car exported as a grey import
In some light it looks silver, in other light looks gold.
On the official traffic authorities papers it's registered as bronze.
