JDM Catalog 11/1971 -- this may be the serial numbers where 3N71B automatic was first introduced. Translation is unclear.

* Sedan: From B110-226985
* Coupe: From B110-877228
USA Catalog
* U = United States models
* N = Canada models. Also some U models were sold in Canada.

[I'm guessing the "Z" means the Zama plant, and "F" means the Fuji Heavy Industries plant. This fits because only some Coupe models were marked F, while all sedans were built at the Zama plant.]
