Here is a link you can check the tag with being I couldn't tell you the trim (M 6 G) and the third F 5. Mopar Fender Tag Decoder

Where is the Superlite option code on there, was it part of the light package?
 
Thanks Jim, That's a lot of great info. Still researching this cars history. Meant to post VIN tag pic earlier but forgot. I do know that the interior was redone custom in tan leather including boot for the top, some things like the arm rest may have been dyed tan to match from what I can tell. They are flaking off and white underneath. I'm almost sure that the original top was white along with the seats probably but I like that new tan top and it's fitted very nicely. I've never bought a vehicle so extensively restored before, trying to figure out what's correct what's wrong what I like or don't like. I do like original looking and functionally correct vehicles to stay true to the history and hobby of restoring these cars. But I don't see nothing wrong with an upgrade in certain areas. This will be very fun to finish this car off down to the details.
 
Anybody notice that light stamping at the top of fender tag ( 70 ). What's that all about?
Not sure. Wondering that myself. I know the little tag attached to the actual fender tag was for I believe who inspected it, before the car was set on it's "Mary way". Someone please correct me if i'm wrong here.
 
Don't know which is more impressive- your restoration or your restoration photos. Surely you took these sharp photos with a digital SLR instead of the usual cell phone!

Never seen a scoopless air cleaner like that on a Mopar. Was that aftermarket?

Congratulations! She is a real beauty!
 
Day she got delivered drizzly rain, took pics with my S6 edge + phone. Thats an open air cleaner no snorkles,far as i can tell original. Thanks all for the compliments. It's not perfect and didn't expect it to be. It will be fun to finish her out on some details. I'm still geekin over swinging the deal on this car. Time capsule.
