Hello, I need someone who has knowledge on the 65 data tag. I recently got a 65 that is gold. I tried to get the PHS, only to be told that they dont have one for mine. Said that its rare but does happen. So heres my question how do I know for sure it's a tiger gold car?? I will post a picture of the data tag. Someone please help!! Thank you!!

2-2 = First "2" means Special Paint. Second "2" means Black vinyl top

Below the 213-B meaning:
W= Tinted Windshield
O= Two tone paint w/chrome separator strip (vinyl top)
2=Second Group of Accessory Codes
W= 2speed automatic (with 389CI)
G= Console
P= Radio
R= Rear seat speaker
You have no Group 3 accessories
4= Fourth Group of Accessory Codes
F= Outside remote mirror
5= Fifth Group of Accessories Codes
N= GTO option
W= Custom retractable front seat belts

Special Paint will not have a specific color, even on the PHS documents. So if it is said to be Tiger Gold and you have no need to doubt it, then it was most likely the Tiger Gold as claimed.

Typically the paint codes are letters, special paint codes are numbers, in 65 tiger gold was a special code paint used initially for the Hurst GTO promotion. I believe 2-2 would indicate a tiger gold body with a tiger gold top or a black vinyl top.
