I'm trying to decipher the tag on my 37 and can't find all the info. Here is what I have so far and what I am missing

Style 37-1019 = Master Deluxe 4-Door with Trunk
Body T5653 = ?
Trim 61 = Brown Mohair Interior
Paint 210 (?) = Car is black but this is hard to read, does anyone know if 210 is the right #?

So I am basically only missing what Body T5653 means so if someone could help me out and confirm the others that would be great.

On a side note can anyone recommend a good cover? This is why I started to actually try and decipher what all these items meant so I could get a cover that fit properly. Car is currently being stored in a warehouse that does have some of the "natural light" skylights in it (not glass but are enough to light up the building in the daytime). Building is not air conditioned and it does get very hot in there.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Paint #210 is black with an Ivory wheel and body stripe.
The T in the body number would indicate the body was made at the Tonowanda, NY Fisher Body plant.What are the first one or two numbers of the serial number (ahead of the GA?)

I may be incorrect. The "T" could be Tarrytown, NY>

The "2" indicates the car was assembled at the Tarrytown, N.Y. plant,,,,The first two numbers after the GA the month.
