Wow!!! She is a beautiful!!! Welcome to the forum!

SCHED 066 – Scheduled on November 27, 1954 approximately
ITEM 1006 – sixth car built that day
Trim 56 – White Leather Bolsters and Gold Leather Inserts (unfortunately no picture)

Q1: Are these items listed in the “Custom” Accessory Group No. 3 present on the car?
Q2: What lettering stamped on the tag mounted by left screw? Is it “Customer Drive Away”?

Hi there. Question for this post. I have a 56 New Yorker Newport 2 door coupe. The paint code on the data plate shows 431. I can't find that code anywhere. Could you tell me what the colors are and the paint scheme of the car? Thank you for your help.

Your color code is 431 that means a “Special Two Tone”;
The upper Color is Sand Dune Beige and the lower color is Rosewood Tan…
