Can anyone help me decode my fender tag?

I spent a couple hrs looking at about 20 different sites and for some of the options i could not get a straight answer. Due to the fact that most of the codes are for 78 only? Hopefully someone can help me decode this. The fender tag is stamped as such:
Y37 Y83 END
M25 M55 N88 N94 P41
A36 G63 G37 H51 L31 L35
TX9 VX3 U 28 B12 B3
TX9 H4X9 000 C02 Q27339
E68 D36 SS22 P8R 183434

I know that the last 13 digits are the vin but the rest is a bit of a mystery. Its a 1978 cordoba can anyone help?

That car is single exhaust too from the factory; only the U Code 440's had duals complete with catalysts in 1978.
