I will give it a try....
07E: last week in July (E being the 5th week)
64-2237: 64=1964 model year, 22=LeMans, 37=2 door hardtop
PO 24573: Fisher Body plant in Pontiac MI, 24573 is a number used for sequencing in the Fisher Plant.
Trim 217: interior color Aqua
Paint P-P: Aquamarine metallic
ACC: accessory list for Pontiac and Kansas City Fisher Plant items
1W:tinted windshield
2P:radio
5N:GTO group
5W:unknown....could possibly be 2W? If so, that would denote the 2 speed automatic with 389 engine

Serial number on door is the VIN
8 =engine cylinders
2=LeMans
4=1964 model year
P=Pontiac final assembly plant
298622=assembly plant serial number

You can contact PHS and send for the production docs. If available for your car, then you will receive paperwork that may validate the GTO package was ordered for your LeMans.

That last accessory code sure looks like a 5 to me. My book only shows two possible codes for group 5. N for GTO and Z for seat belt delete. The book also says that delete option was Pontiac plant only. Does your car have seat belts?

Sounds like a great car you have there.

No 2LG, just a 2P.
5W is a seatbelt option

Trim tag reads like car was originally built with 3 speed.
To determine if original Tripower optioned car, wil need to look at PHS copy of original build card.

The GTO option with the 389 Tri power was only an option in Pontiac Ms and KS. 5N means GTO option. As far as I can research. Please let me know if you find something different.

Thanks again, it is a true 1964 GTO 389 Tri-power. PHS is an outstanding source of information. They have "ALL" the documentation on the car. It's worth the $75.00 if you want to find out everything on the build of the vehicle.

100% original. Original owner from 1964, verified through PHS. Best site ever. Drove it home 30 miles. Very lucky barn find.
