I haven't been able to find a WR code for "B".
Obviousely I mistyped the "F", was an "E"

If the 62 accessory codes are the same as the 61, then this should be how the ACC line is decoded:

A = Direct Air heater
D = Spyder
E = Bucket seats on 4 door models
H = Padded dash
Ν = Powertop
K = Tinted Glass (all windows)
J = Tinted Windshield?
L = Convertible top code followed by a number indicating color.
O = Manual Transmission (no code for PG for WR cars)
Β = Air Conditioning
F = Rear folding seat optional on 500/700 models
C = Rear door armrests (500/700 sedans)

I'm not sure what you mean by a "WR code for B". The "WR" means the car was assembled at the Willow Run plant.

That's what threw me - the 1962 Acc codes have "B" as Air Conditioning. This is a 1961 700 Lakewood PG wagon and A/C was not available. Also, "E" is bucket seats on 1962 4-door models, and this is bench seats, with folding rear seat.

I haven't found a good 1961 Acc Code chart anywhere yet.
It does have "H", padded dash, "C" rear armrest, "F" folding rear seat, and tinted glass all around, which isn't indicated.
Thanks for the help
Fred
