Figuring out 65 GTO Data Plate

I have looked all over and can not figure out some of the codes on my data plate. Any expert advice would be greatly appreciated.

On the first line there is an O5C 1. I know the O5C means May third week, but what does the 1 stand for.

On the trim line for interior it has 213-B. I know 213 means black, but what is the B?

The line below that on the accessory line it has 2BP. What does that stand for?

Then on the very bottom of the tag to the right of "Body by Fisher" is a 21-2. What does this stand for?

The assembly plant is PON which I would imagine is Pontiac, MI.

Thanks,
Dale

The line below that on the accessory line it has 2BP. What does that stand for? Group 2 - floor mounted 3-speed syncho-trans, radio


Then on the very bottom of the tag to the right of "Body by Fisher" is a 21-2. What does this stand for? No idea

The assembly plant is PON which I would imagine is Pontiac, MI. Yep

Thanks,
Dale

That is what I kind of figured it all meant. But the bench seat confuses me. I thought it might mean that, but I found a site that says the code for black bench seats should be 235, so the 213-B remains a mistery. The car currently has buckets, and judging from the condition of the cushion material and covering, could still be original, but that really means nothing. Also, did they put bench seats in GTO's? I have seen GTO's before with the three speed manual and have seen pictures of GTO's with bench seats, but I always thought they may have been badged as a GTO and not really a GTO. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Dale

I had updated my 1st post. I see a 213-p was Parchment/Black, not seeing a b. From my information, I see bench seats were available from the factory for '67 - '69. I didn't look beyond '69. I'm only seeing buckets for '65/'66, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I suppose a dealer install is always possible. There's '65 and '66 guys out here that will know for sure.....

I rechecked it and it is definitely 213-B. I also rechecked and from what I can find a 65 with black bench would have a 256. So it makes no sense to me. It also shows that a black bench could be a 268 or 279.

Here is the web site I found it on.

I will try and get a good picture of it tonight and post it. I know a lot of people say that a GTO built at the PON site should have a code of 5N on the data plate, this one does not. So the car is probably a well done clone or did not get the 5N code. I probably need to reach in my wallet and spend the $65 for the PHS documents.
