Buck plate query

Recommended Posts

I have been checking my cars numbers and have found the door tag matches the dash tag matches the engine stamp matches the buck plate. There is one section of the buck plate that has me confused though. After the 63R is 30J which I understand tells you the scheduled build date. I doubt It's 30 June or July as the Marti report states it was bucked on 22 September and scheduled  for build on 30 September, so J must represent September?

I think too that whoever was in charge of the B stamp at the bottom may have been drinking that day. The numbers stamped on the engine while correct are all over the place as well.

 

The car seems very tidy and shows 99969 miles on the speedo. Is this considered a low mileage for a car of this vintage in the states?
