There is also information on what they can do and the cost. As long as you have the title or some proof of ownership they are good to go.

I think ..... some times. Lancer Mike posted on the "1958 DeSoto Data Tag" thread, the info for the
Spring Special. The page that was posted was hard to read, so Mike wrote what was on the page.
At the bottom the Spring Special page it says "Order by Code #314". Duh.. How did I miss that all
these years. So I checked both Spring Special IBM cards, and sure enough, in column 31 there is
a punch on number 4. Column 31 is the Accessory Groups column. The only 4 on the Tag is under "B".
So, is that how the Spring Special was identified?

Also, both cars show code 431, which is I.P.S.C. . I don't know what this stands for, but I think it has
to do with the interior. Both cars had colorful interiors, not the usual gray interior. ?

Just to confuse matters Heather Blue Poly was code WWW in 1958 (Ditzler 11931) and when the 1959 models were introduced it was code DDD and still Ditzler 11931. Apparently about a dozen 1959 models were painted in the 1958 Heather Blue Poly. when they changed the colour and gave it a new code 12084. Chrysler, however, kept the same name and code (DDD) for the new colour.

314 - Yes, that would be how DeSoto identified the Spring Special trim. Instead of having various options included in one group, they had a selection of trim pieces in one group

431 - Padded Instrument Panel or I.P.S.C. - Instrument Panel Safety Cover

The interior trim colour combinations on your car would be covered by the trim code - 631.

I was pretty close!

Bill, your wealth of information amazes me. I don't know what people are going to do when your time comes to go. Hopefully you can download that info to someone else before you leave.

Codes and such!

Been there, done that, more than 30 years ago!

When did SS trim become available?? When did the factory issue "new" broadcast sheets/ body plates to reflect this new trim??? Good luck guys. I sure as hell can't find any answers.

We have all seen body plates embossed that APPEAR to be applicable to SS items. But, without broadcast sheet/punch card examples for KNOWN cars, it is nothing but guess work.

Greg


What say you now?

I don't know about you guys, but I have learned a lot about these cars over the passed three years.
What a great team we have here. It helps when people participate. I encourage people to get the
history on their car(s) from FCA / Chrysler Historical Society, and share it with us.

None to very little progress with spring special timing and code documentation especially for Dodges. I have known the actual 58 sales codes for years and Chrycoman has been very helpful in interpreting the punch cards
