Re: [T3] What is this?

<x-flowed>Damn Neil, great detective work! And to think I *almost* was going to throw it away...eek!

Here's the car:
-BN2 gas heater
-factory sunroof
-fuel injection but no dashpot (engine was rebuilt so...)
-red tail lights (look like typical late model tails)
-dual circuit brake system w/warning lamp
-no side markers (rats!) and no wiring to indicate they were ever there
-rear glass defroster
-M616 ? The brake circuit failure lamp works but it doesn't illuminate when the automatic is put in reverse
-original AM radio
It was supposed to have come from Canada but the speedometer is in mph, however, it looks like it's supposed to be there i.e. looks original. But the second or third or whoever owner could've had it swapped out when it was brought into the US.

In my opinion, it seems to be a US car that just happens to have a gas heater installed by the factory (or maybe a VERY caring dealership!).

There is no part number as above. There is no 36 subgroup in Main Group 2. I think the numbers in the 9.2, 9.3 and 9.5 boxes are the M-codes for your car. I don't know why they would repeat them. They are as follows:
33 - ??? 060 - Ebersp?cher stationary heater
102 - Glass (heatable) - rear window
236 - Fuel injection system instead of with carburetor
239 - Sealed beam headlights, flashing indicators with side marker lights,
red tail lights, dual circuit brake warning light, back-up lamp, fuel
injection engine with dashpot, without headlamp flasher and parking lamp
249 - Automatic Transmission
616 - Back-up light in the brake indicator light

Maybe the 361 236 249 number is body style 361, M-codes 236 and 249

Anyway, these are my guesses. How do the M-codes match up to your car?
