Your car was built earlier than August 30, 1959 at the Warren Avenue Plant.
It is early (fourth Imperial) production car.
The fourth digit of your Serial Number should be 4, and the whole Serial Number is 9x04100004.
After May, production has moved to the Jefferson Plant.
Please, post a photo of the data plate and I will try to help you.
The 1961 Imperial data plate built in Warren is located on the right side of the radiator support, as in the picture below – highlighted in yellow.

I think under GH stands 52 are would be correct (not a FG):
G5 = Code 315 = Heater less Air Conditioning
H2 = Code 332 = White Convertible Top Color
Q3 = Code 423 = Radio Golden Touch Tuner with Power Antenna less Rear Seat Speaker
W1 = Code 441 = Solex Tinted Glass; (I don’t think under V stands 1)
I have never seen Z6 before… no idea what is it…

Under «SO – Shipping Order» should be stands four digits, not a three digit «001» as you wrote…
It might be 0801 that deciphering as «Scheduled on August 8, 1960»…
I have a picture of build card 1961 Imperial Custom VIN# 9114100202 (202th Imperial built), which shipped on August 30, 1960, so your car was built earlier;
Next 0006 is a sixth car built that day (although I don’t understand why it’s a 6th car with 4th car by the VIN – 100004 as you said)

BDY 925 = Imperial (9), Crown (2), Convertible (5); Now we know your correct VIN is 9214100004
TRM 957 = White Leather Upholstery
PNT PP1 = Coronation Red Paint (PP), Monotone Paint Scheme (1); do not confused with Chrysler PP1 Paint Code – Mardi Gras Red…

You might try to post the data plate picture. The picture should be jpg. and less 250kB…
