I'm sorry I neglected to the X derivatives -  X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6 X7. 
X = black interior trim, which was used with blk std, blk dlx, blk htooth, white htooth, orange Htooth, white std, yellow Htooth, and any other color which had black interior trim.

RS/Z28 04C 711 blk std   X3 clearly visible.



I have never seen a car with a color other than black trim have an X on the bulkhead.
If someone has a car with blue red or green interior which shows the X on the bulkhead vs a color abbreviation (R B ltG or G) please provide photos.
Lacking such evidence this issue doesn't have much controversy left.

Here are the pic's again, as they probably got erased during the website reset. I would have thought by now SOMEONE has to know what this means. Gotta be ton's of research examples, right? .. Danny

01C X77 LeMans - "X7" on bulkhead. I hope my 12A L78 shows either a 2 or at worst a 6 - never been able to tell otherwise.

I like the idea that they were "X" for black interior paint trim and other colors were the exception that needed to be noted for the interior painter.  Makes too much sense to be otherwise.
