I was just curious if you could be able to tell the date of stamping from the actual GM sticker.  On the GM sticker above (477) is that 1981 in the top right corner the year Huh

Yep -

Note the correlation between the 6F1 and the 0163 right over the part number (which shows the "0" prefix difference between that and the '78 production date code sticker). I had sold the other '78 panel separately (damaged), and paired these several years ago, subsequently sold over eBay. Wish I still had them - they were flawless.

Regards,
Steve
Forgive me Steve, I'm not getting your explanation, LOL.  How can you tell its a 1978 panel??

Can you tell the actual date of stamping from genuine GM parts labels on NOS sheet metal ??   Does the actual GM sticker have a date on it???  I'm referring to the date the part was produced.

Another "BAD" car from Florida!!  Anyway, here is his explanation:

                   
Dear x66ss396,

Hello, yes the protecto plate is slightly different, the last 3 digits are off. From what I was told there were often slight mistakes made when stamping the plates. The window sticker matches the car exactly and shows the same dealership as the protecto plate. The plate also shows the car being the same Color, Convertible, AC, Options ect as the car has. Plus the dealership it was sold at. So the chances of it not being for this car is very slim. It was most likely a mis stamp like I was told.

I used a similar set with threaded bolts.  These are trick! The set I ordered was for 69 Camaro's.   http://www.zip-corvette.com/ProductDetails/ProductDetails.aspx?pid=%7BD788949E-9F1A-401E-A432-0DA66274EA3E%7D&gid=%7B67095CFD-CDB8-4760-BB63-E84E86D4831D%7D&pname=63-82+Upper+Ball+Joint+Rivet%2fNut+Set&Referer=&Alias=&ptct=SGR-SR&CTitle=&

I do not agree that we are 'back to square one'.  I believe we've confirmed that Mr Serio is correct (NO DATE CODE, per se), BUT.. we've also learned empirically that the ID code/SN has a month/year encoded into the SN...  which serves the same purpose for us. Smiley
A 'date code' is a marking put on a part purely to record the actual date (time/shift/etc) without any other purpose.    The Hurst ID/Serial number code has multiple pieces of information in it, some of which we do not know, but we've pretty conclusively shown that there is a month and year encoded as part of this SN.   But I doubt they did it just so we could demonstrate originality to a car 44 years later..  Smiley
You do make a valid point.

'continuing the search'...   69Znut, on Team Camaro on April 11, 2008, had a very involved posting on Hurst shifters..

http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54774

which will enlighten most of us to some extent if you haven't read it before, and in that posting, he states
"A serial number on the far right of the words HURST Competition Plus was used to perform factory warranty repairs for GM, Pontiac, America Motors (Javelin & AMX) and early 1970 Mustang & Torino’s all used this 3138 housing box. The serial number has no meaning today and is NOT a date code. "

BUT.. his statement that the SN is not a date code, does NOT mean that the initial digits do not imply month and year of production, as that information IS sometimes embedded into manufacturer's serial numbers, and thus far with the examples we've checked this has proven to be true..

I think this is the thread I read sometime ago.  Great info thx.
