OK, i've managed to decode almost all of the numbers on my Falcon..

JG - Australian Broadmeadows
31YJ - Jan '81 XD wagon
Trans code L - 4 speed floor shift
Engine W - 4.1 Litre A/H

Ok, so heres the question - is there a comprehensive list of both..
SIDO numbers? Cant remember the number offhand, But i'd like to know where it came from, as it hasnt got the original numberplate.. could have been from over east or something, etc
Paint Codes - EY400.. I got a tin of paint with the car, and its described as a Ford Fleet colour. I've NEVER seen a falcon the same colour as mine. ever. its like a blue teale, with a black underchassis.. and its the factory paintjob too. Any ideas if this was an RPO colour?

Thanks in advance!
