    the 9 underneath the little x on the top row indicates a special order car. 999 paint code is a special order colour. Ive got the same on my car which i believe was originally omaha orange.

    This should do the job

    Ours is a 3.55 sure grip 383 4 speed Built in February. You spoke with him? We had ours at the museum but no one there knew anything about it. Was he able to tell you anything about the history of these cars? We are taking it to the MCACN show in Chicago a couple weeks from now. It's kinda rough and will be in the barn finds section

    My mistake. When you mentioned Richard I thought you meant the King. From what I have been able to find is that there may have only been 10 built. Your late production date has me wondering about that number however.
