Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 Trim Tag Build Date 1SD

Ditto.  It was the week before Christmas. And with Christmas being on Monday I'd say folks took a few days off for an extended vaca.  Also several L78 & Z cars built that week.

Delco stamped can be very faint and I have seen a few (not many) that can not be seen.  Stamp is located straight down below the vacuum check valve and upside down.

Its a legit tag from what I can see but what I find interesting is the lack of scheduling code.

Assume the A is for 1st shift and B for 2nd.

May 10th of 68

Sounds about right for your car.

What's the date on the other box?

What is the date on the box itself.  The stamped date on the front pad just below the "CHECK" casting on the cover and reference it to the build date on the car to give you an idea of it possibly being the original.

Again 12D of 67

320th day of 67

Nice project.  Glad to see a thread about something other than a 69 Z on the site.

I retract my previous statement about it being a L48.  Looks like you have very positive signs of it being a Z.  Congrats.

Still have the one my dad bought for the green car back in the 70's.  I've been thinking about bolting it back on.

You have a good point Ed that is why I added the disclaimer.   ;D

In all seriousness I did not see the steering wheel pic.  I still stand by my opinion until more pics come out.

Good point. So what your saying is all of Jerry's inspections if not kept by the seller, once they disappear are gone forever.

Not a true statement.

My $0.01.

If you wanna start your own database go for it.  BUT I honestly don't see a point unless it is a personal goal.  If you are worried about future potential owners getting screwed it has to be up to them to search out the info on the car and to seek out experts in the hobby.  The world has become so digital now that info is out there one way or another.  CRG forum as a whole does a very good job of "policing" fake or suspect cars.  If you are concerned about the future of CRG I can almost guarantee if I know Kurt and the other guys that are core members there are steps in place to move this group forward in the future.  Who is it?  IDK and honestly not my concern.  I'll continue to do my thing and do my own research with the help of every resource I have available.  I help when I can or feel it is necessary.  Other times I try to input some humor.  Some might but I'm sure most don't but this is a HOBBY.  If you allow it; it will become a job and will no longer be enjoyable.  Think you had the right idea in a previous post about being out in the driveway sanding on the tri-five with the kids.  That is where it really counts.
