    HB1: Powder Blue Top Color

    Is that a Power Blue Vinyl top? The chrome trim does not really seem like it was a vinyl top....

    Your confusion suggests that the rest of the car isn't blue. I assume this code was on the third row from the bottom of the tag?

    Two tone. Roof painted blue.

    HB1 is a paint code for Blue Sky.

    What are the codes beneath it & over it since we can not see your tag?

    Does the tag also show V02 or ?

    So it looks like maybe the vinyl top was something somebody added when it was a way to make it "more desirable" at that point in time. That explains why the trim chrome does not seem to be correct.

    HB1 in both positions, so mono-tone paint car. (no vinyl top) Those are not factory top moldings either, so definitely added.
