The code set (two numbers or a number and letter) above COLOR identify the exterior paint color, with two sets of codes designating two tone paint. The three digits under W.N. designate the wheelbase in inches. The letter and three digits under TYPE/G.V.W. designate the truck model within a series and the gross vehicle weight rating. The letters and/or numbers under BODY designate the interior trim, seat and body type. The transmission installed in the vehicle is identified under TRANS by an alphabetical code.
