There is an 11A car with a large tag it is an unrestored HO Z28.

I have been seeing this alot lately. What is the "HO" stand for?

HO is short for 'high output Hugger Orange'...  :)

Very interested in the topic.... Also as curious, when did they go from the color abbreviation to X ie  "DG7" to "X7" in crayon behind the rear seat ? Or was this just one employees way of writing it? Or was this a Norwood or LOS difference? for mine its X in crayon, but I have deluxe white hounds tooth, so I dont know how they would abbreviate that.

DG7 is for Dark Green painted interior trim
X7 is for Black interior
B7 is for Blue
R7 is for Red
White HT would have black painted int trim which is why it has a X7

James, so the letter(s) denoted interior color and the number the model/trim, meaning only cars with a black interior should have X(letter) on the rear seat/shelf structure, regardless of the trim tag X codes? So for example, a red interior SS350 would have R5, not X5?

From what has been observed that is correct, pretty certain it is a painting note.

NOTE that any interior with black painted trim ie Orange HT, Yellow HT, White HT, Parchment, and of course Black and black HT will have an X.

Very interesting. I guess the vast majority of the time we see an X behind the rear seat, it's far more probable that the car has a black, or HT interior.

Went to a cruise this evening. Saw a 1969 X55 L78 car that I had not seen before. Build date was 12 B. VIN is N559370 and the build number is NOR 146170, the six might be a five. Old eyes aren't as good these days but looked like a 6
