Poster was reading the codes top to bottom - here is what his tag should look like - I am guessing a WH23 model. Also he posted N42 twice - one of those should be N41. Also, I think we are missing the line of codes that has the top color, country spec, brakes, center console or buddy seat, and buckets code. With the J54 Hood code - should be a A57 Rallye code there too. Pretty cool car - if my guesses are correct - completely full fender tag.

N42. R35. V21. V8X. 28. END.
M21. M25. M26. M31. N41.
G11. G37. H51. J45. J54. L31.
EW1. U. A57. B41. C16. C56.
EW1. H6XW. EW1. 501. 129228.
E68. D34. WH23 P3G 206204

Copied what ODZKing had above and added to it. Fender tags typically listed from bottom to top.

Interesting, is the first time I can check with detail a hardtop SE tag! I think the code for it is A58?

A58 is the "Halo roof package" that was available on 73 SE's which included roll down back windows, the belt moldings, and deleted the louvered fixed side windows. It was a no cost option on SE's.

I thought the Halo / Full roof package was V1X?

Yes on a WH car. The A58 option gave someone buying an SE to have the full vinyl top and roll down windows at no cost. So A58 meant make this an WH car with some SE trinkets.

Or to say, A58 got you V1X on an SE since it was not an option separately.

Isn't V1X just the standard code for a black, full vinyl top?
