Jim,
     I'd love to see some pictures of your car.  You can send them to : kenneth.karrer@gmail.com.   As to the build sheet, I have yet to get it.  I had one for my 55, but I've lost the contact info for it.  Also, I'll need to get an authenticity manual for the 61.  Rick Payton and I will soon be starting on a manual for the 59 cars.
Thanks,
Ken

MY 62 had an amber coating on the plastic parking light lens. it did not look like it was applied at the factory. I removed it with rubbing alcohol. The car came from nebraska so I don't know if NEB. required amber lenses or not?

This offer goes for anyone who will provide a copy of their build sheets.
Hi Jim,
You might already have the build sheet for my '61 but here it is all the same as well as the sheet for my '58.
I have always wondered where is outlet 860111.

I ordered the build sheet yesterday.  But as I now have another 61 in my shop...I now realize that my 61 has a fog light set up with amber lenses.  I'm now on the hunt for the correct fog light covers that have the "bullet" in the center.  I'll share the build sheet etc. as soon as it comes in.
Thanks,
Ken
