Default RE: Build sheet decoding

Well, I'll do the best I can for what I can read. This build sheet is in pretty good shape, but there are a lot of numbers that are illegible.
It's a 66 A code , 4 speed manual that was colored Ivy Green Metallic, built in Octover of 1965. It was built at the Metuchen, NJ plant, the speedometer gear is G, and it was equipped with an export suspension and a special handkling package.
Maybe some of the other guys with younger eyes can fill in the blanks. It was special ordered unit 01.
I am confused about the convertible top "S". Is this car a vert?

08 before the A in the serial number signifies a vert
76B is a luxury interior vert
F9 intererior = parchment/ palomino luxury trim

Axle 6 A doesnt make sense
6 = 2.8:1 open wheeler. A = 3.00:1 limited slip.

def A code 289, 4 spd, 25 Oct build.

the region/ district 95 means it was an export car...hence the export suspension.
the special handling package was also standard on the export cars and includedincreased rate front and rear springs, heavier front sway barand (correct me if i'm wrong) front disc brakes. So the build sheet is actually for a T5 vert!!! (T5 was what they called the european export cars as there was already a company called Mustangs and Ford could not reach an agreement over use of the name with them)

that wouldbe a valuable document to the cars owner. 66 data was destroyed and that is the only way to verify what the car was actually produced as from new.

Yes, that's my understanding too. It was the Germans who already had something called the Mustang.

The black letters are obviously more clear but the red designation of what those letters represent are not clear.
