Not sure exactly what you're trying to find out, but the X44 was about as plain-Jane of a car as you could get- no wheel well or drip rail moldings, no bright headlight trims, etc. the trim tag won't tell you what engine came in the car, but a 327/3speed is quite probable.

The tag indicates 65-50 for the exterior paint, which was an Olymic Gold/Dover White paint combo, and the 721 indicates a green interior with standard buckets. Interesting color combo to say the least.....

Definitely not. The X44 is a non-SS, non-RS, non-Z28 code

Definately not, but as noted an interesting color combination I am starting to like! Very outside chance it was a big block COPO.

If it's restoreable, then it looks like you got a good deal for $1k. Hopefully, you can do a lot of the restoration work.

Just to be on the side of caution, look for any of the BB clues on the car. Its a million to one shot but if no BB clues are apparant it cannot be a COPO

If I had that car, I would restore to the original specs, it would be the hit of every show! Very different then your run of the mill colors!

That's up to you. While gold/white/green is a somewhat "unique" color combo, it'll appeal to a very limited crowd. You've got to drive it- is that what you want to be driving around in? Personally, I wouldn't do it, but it's not my car.
