Options deciphering

I've just recently received my Marti Report. I wanted to see where the car originated and what it was shipped with.
Now, it is by no means going to be a full concours restoration but I thought it would be cool to keep some of the original options.
The options listed were: Sprint Promotion A, wheel covers and tinted glass.

I have two questions:
1) How can i determine if the car did/didn't come with the front bumper guards?
2) How can i determine what color the C stripe was originally?

I know i could probably add the guards and be done with it. But i was curious about them.
And the stripe...well, i've seen 'unrestored' meadowlark yellow cars with white and black stripes. I also found a remnant of a stripe on the inside lip of my door but it's been painted over and I can't tell what it was or even if it was added during a repaint.

I've done some cursory searches but have seen conflicting info so I thought I would pose this to the experts.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the buck tag has the info on colors. The stripe (so I've heard) should match the interior. Not sure about the bumper guards.
My tag says my car should be Lime Gold with a black top. It was red with a white top when i bought it, so, yeah, it's nowhere near concourse.

Ah, thanks. The stripe matching the interior matches what i've seen in pics and it makes sense.
Mine has been repainted before. It's still the factory color, though. I'll eventually strip it to the shell and paint it properly but that's a few years away.
