Matching numbers

I have a conundrum. I would like to see what the popular take on a numbers matching car is. My father-in-law, an ol' skool hotrodder, once explained to me that a numbers matching car was a car built in the very late sixties to present and represented the start of automobile automation. Matching numbers is the product of preplanned automated vehicle production and the muscle cars of the late sixties and all cars through present fall under this category. I believed this for a long time and I am finding out that this is not a popular theory, although there others who also believe this to be true.
So lets lay it to rest once and for all and give me the scoop on what matching numbers really is. I know this generally starts a few disagreements, but this is to find the most popular definition for my own knowledge.
Thanks guys for bearing with me on this matter.
