Decoding 70' GTO Trim Tag

I am considering a 70' GTO project and would like help decoding some of the info on the trim tag. I have attached a pic which hopefully you can read ok.
The 472B has me puzzled. Is the exterior code 47 Verdoro Green and the 2B an option or option group?
What do the following codes represent?
9B
CO8
Am I correct in assuming the M20 is in fact a close ratio 4 speed trans?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

i believe 2B would be black vinyl top, not sure what the third line options are. Love the big Made In Canada stamping. Best bet will be to contact PHS.com and see if they have the original build sheet on the canadian cars, that will tell you exactly what options it was born with.

Thanks again instg8ter...
I have determined the 472B is actually the exterior color 47 Verdoro Green...
The C08 is a full vinyl roof...
Now all I need is the 2B and 9B codes...
Would really appreciate any help with these codes...

OK, just edited my former post.

Found this on the internet. The "2B" may be for the top choice/upper body. Are you sure the "C08" is for the vinyl roof? According to the website, those numbers that follow the 9B are the "daily production sequence numbers", "manifest sequence numbers", or "broadcast sequence numbers" depending on which plant built the car.. The 9B is the build date which is 9=September, B=Second week.

I learned the C08 is definitely the RPO for a full vinyl roof. The 2B must indicate the Black color. Thanks for your help!
