It's just a detail, but a fragment of new information has surfaced regarding the use and meaning of sales code M33. Please refer to post #184.
This fender tag for a 1974 Fury III, that seems to have been ordered as an unmarked police car, has probably M33 and what looks to be no vinyl insert in the full-length body mouldings:

V5X, the sales code for the black vinyl insert, presupposes and surpresses M33, as the two codes never appear together on Fury III fender tags. In real life, you can't insert something if you haven't got something to insert it in.
Again, good work. K VONs and Y39 Special Order correlate but the actual application of the vehicle ("Unmarked police car") requires further documentation. Based on what's presented, we do not know who ordered it and for what purpose. Cop cars likely have a K VON but not all K VONs are cop cars.
