decoding 1961 body buck tag

Anyone know of a site or know what the 61 codes mean?

On my Meteor wagon i'm stripping down the tag is still on the firewall on a screw outboard of the right hood hinge.
4 lines of code
top is.... 67 0
2nd line.. 6 901 6 9 (the 9 almost at the screw hole)
3rd line.. 1PP 62 S
bottom.... 13487 271H L

That 13487 isn't the VIN on the last line, the 271H is the body style code like on the door jamb and i'd guess L for left hand drive. The 1PP is paint code. I assume two tone, gold with white roof but?

Originally Pagoda Green with a White convertible top. Came with the rare factory installed W Code 427 and optional Jerico 4 speed all in front of a Detroit Locker 4:11 rear. Unfortunately, the less than popular Ivy Gold interior may make this car hard to sell.

I kinda figured the 6 meant W code427... which was a really early prototype in 61.

On later year tags i've seen there are things like PDB for power disc brakes and PS or AC or other codes. Maybe 61 isn't like that. I'm curious if the tag denotes the 15" wheels or other stuff.
