The Body tag for the 1958 Cadillac models carries a mysterious code, to the right of the Trim code number.  It consists of one or two letters, or a letter and number.  Some examples are:  “S“, “AX“, “P2“.  These are NOT accessory codes or codes for paint and trim.  This vehicle carries the code “AX” and I am currently doing research to try and figure out what it means.
