An original factory ’54 Dodge IBM-card for example:

This is MODEL 827 = Dodge V8 (8), Coronet Series (2), Suburban 2-Door Station Wagon (7)
PAINT 30 = Dawn Gray (code 530)
TRIM 665 = Green and Tan Two-Tone Vinyl

REAR AXLE 35, TRANS 4 and HEATER 1 are the same like on your car.

It has equipped the Solex Tinted Glass (code 321) and Accessory Group 475 (vs. 478 on your car);
NEW CAR SERVICE 771 (vs. 773 on your car)

BUT!!! There is NOT Accessory Group 492!!!
I can assume, that the Solex Tinted Glass is including in this (492) group on your car!!!
Therefore your column SP.GLASS (32) is empty on the IBM-card

That sounds very plausible. Thank you very much for your explanation and the view of an OE card. I am assuming dealer installed accessories would not show on IBM card, is that correct? I was told the Offenhauser four barrel intake manifold and the Carter WCFB was a dealer installed option except for the Pace car then it was a factory installed option.

Actually Igor, that card is a 6 bit, 90 column Remington Rand data card (I had to discover that today so don't feel bad)

Based on the Remington Rand "Rosetta Stone" below, I think the letters and numbers just printed directly above the column with the respective punches, i.e. no translator like with the 80 column IBM cards.

What you see it what you get.

(I just emailed Dr. Jones for assistance/direction)

Figured it out using the "Rosetta Stone" 90 column card.

What you see is what you get. Numbers and letters print at the top of the respective column.
