    That’s why I posted both. Am puzzled at the eBay ad vs. the tag vs. the build sheets. I understand that not all options may always be on the tag, but this is more good than I remember seeing in other 1970 cars. Please enlighten me?

    That car is one of the 7 known PM27T0D cars. Most of the other 6 cars are similarly loaded.

    Many options do not appear on the tag . You will not find the superlite L36 on any tag yet, cornering lights are on there.

    Hope you enjoyed the cake! Meanwhile, @Zephyr 's white 1970 Plymouth Fury III Convertible with 318 has its nicely cleaned tag here. Another birthday coming up -- 9/22 for this one:

    Well, my car's birthday was yesterday. I thought about it on Monday and again today, but forgot it yesterday. I had better not miss her fiftieth next year!

    I bought a convertible yesterday. Not a C Body- by far! - but still a sweet one. Only had 57,000 miles and it's a 2002! 20181206_112752.jpg 20181203_123220.jpg 20181203_123242.jpg 20181203_123328.jpg 20181205_155301.jpg

    I almost fell out of my chair.
    I looked at the pic too briefly and thought it said 5.7

    That Polara 'vert (DL27 L0D 196549) has been discussed in this thread -- thank you for photographing its tag and posting the pictures!

    This poor ragtop has a number of interesting features, including being the only light beige (EL1) car of which I am aware, with matching tan body side stripes (V5T). Order number (VON) starts with an M, too.

    That is possibly the first 70 300 convert built. It's using the 69 440 K code engine designation.
