72 convertible; Help for a newbie...please

Asked by Jul 09, 2011 at 03:33 PM about the 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Question type: General

Hi, I'm the proud new owner of a 72 cutlass supreme convertible. It belonged to my step-dad and I'm interested in restoring it. I was hoping someone could help me interpret this information that I got from the plate under the hood.

ST72    34267LAN322615 BDY
TR 979  57 T PNT
12C (or maybe 2C)      A65

I know the original paint and trim colors are in there....would love to know what they are. What do the other codes mean? Also any recommendations on any books about this car and restoring would be greatly appreciated.....TIA

1 Answer

TIA: ST72 means that it's a '72 model 3=olds, 42=cutlass, 67=converible LAN=Lansing MI where it was assembled TR 979 is the interior trim pkg, I think your is a bench seat 57 T PNT is the paint code; 57=Baroque Gold (body color) T=Beige top
