Decode 55 Cowl Tag Question

My dad is looking at a 55 98 HT Coupe.

The cowl tag reads 3037DX. However, my understanding is that HT coupe should be 3037SDX. Granted, I'm deciphering this from my 56 shop manual and not a 55 shop manual. Can somebody set me straight? Thanks for the help!!

According to my 1960 Olds parts book ;
Style # 55-3037DX is a 1955 98 series Deluxe Holiday Coupe with electric windows and electric 2 way seat .
The same model in 1956 was 56-3037SDX .

Classiccardatabase is full of inaccuracies and is not to be relied on .
