1988 Build Sheet

Hello all,
Been away playing with my other cars.
However, I drove the 88 all summer as it was her 35th birthday.
I have been digging through paperwork looking for something when I came across my original build sheet.
Notice the circle, that's from the factory.
This was a very late June 1988 build I believe.
The car showed up with Leather interior and a non-leather steering wheel.
The salesman did not know the car had leather as it did not show on the window sticker.
I worked for Ford and I know that in parts shortages, we did upgrades, sending cars with things like nicer door panels and steering wheels.
Do you think "A'" stands for Leather or cloth in the seat section?
Or was this an upgrade ?1988 Mercury Cougar.jpg

Not sure if these things correlate but do you have the interior trim code from your driver's door tag? That code, and this code from the build sheet, might be the same. Or they might not LOL. A lot of the time, they do however, that's why I was asking. Sadly I'm not much help with build sheets but if the codes match up then we can ASSume that other things might as well (axle code, radio, etc.).
