    Default Cobra Door Tag Decoded

    Could someone let me know what my car was equipped with originally? It's been heavily modified since 1980 although I was curious what some of the options it might've had.

    Both the buck tag and original gauge cluster were removed before I purchased the car as it's been turned into more of a street/strip race car. I wish I knew more about the car than I do but I was told it was originally a turbo car (of course a buck tag would prove that 100%) however I'm confident it was between color as well as having the turbocharged dash with the cobra emblem and it doesn't appear to have been switched out. By the door tag was this an automatic or 4 speed car? I was able to decode the exterior/interior color codes and the engine code but I've not been able to find the rest of what's listed.

    Thanks FoxChassis!

    I've been trying to decode as much as possible. Wish the buck tag didn't get removed.
