Decoding Pontiac Frame Serial Number

Can anyone help decipher the following frame serial number: K154272
I think 'K' is for Kansas City, where it was manufactured.
15? Is this a date code? Jan 5th?
42 - GTO?
7 - 1967?
2 - Pontiac Division?

I've not been able to find any literature on how to interpret this number so, if anyone has some knowledge they like to share, that's be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Yes, I have the GTO Restoration Guide. Page 12 talks about 1966-67 part numbers. There's a photo on page 17 with a finger pointing to a serial number. It's this serial number that I'm trying to decode. I was hoping Chapter 1 had this info. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place?
