Jim, do you have any insight as to why some engine compartments are painted body color and some are black? I have a Midnight Mist body on my 1963 but the engine compartment is factory painted black.

I didn’t know that the 4 speed was indicated on the cowl tag. Decoding cowl tags would be a great topic. I’m aware of most of the codes except the ACC. line. Mine says “2M” which I assume stands for the air conditioner but the option code for that on my build sheet is C60. I guess the build sheet codes aren’t the same as the cowl tag codes because a 4 speed option code is M20.

Also, my production date on the build sheet is July 25, 1963. On my cowl tag the build date code is 07D….07 means the 7th month of the year and D corresponds with the 4th week of the month (4th letter in the alphabet).
