The last "AD" rims were dated Oct. 24 (68). The first "YH" rims were dated around Dec.17 (68).

Not an original big block car. I wish. But its a 71 402 out of a chevelle...LS-3. it's complete and appears to be all original form carb to pan. hoping to find an interested buyer for it soon. Will get pics of the 68 as soon as I get it from the guys house I  bought it off of. I'm laid up from a work injury at the moment and my garage is kinda full. good thing the buyer is understanding.

Quite interesting.  Thanks for posting this story.  I have on old college buddy in Casper who is a Chevy fan.  I'll have to contact him and see if he knows of Mr. Alexander.  My buddy used to have a 1968 Z/28, not from the Casper dealership though.  A good friend of his that I met during Thanksgiving vacation in 1971 in Casper had a 1969 Z/28, Burnished Brown.  This car very well could have come from this dealership if it was in existence then and could have been sold by this gentleman.

I've heard wheels were changed from AD to YH as a result of the availability of the 4 wheel disc brake option. When did that option begin? My impression has been around Jan 69, and also that's about the time the wheels changed over. How long would it have taken for a YH wheel with a 17 Dec manufacture date to make it to the assembly line? The assembly plant would also have to be notified so that the broadcast sheet could be revised from AD to YH correct? Any broadcast sheets out there from this time frame?

My Van Nuys 1969 Z with an 01C build date has YH identifying the wheels on the chassis broadcast sheet.

Hello all

Name is Rob. Just got my hands on a 68 with a big block. Its a solid project but will be in need of some resto work but am lookin forward to the project. Its got a big block in it now but that is going to be replaced with a killer 302. 68 is my favorite year and I've always wanted to build a screaming 302.

68 SS/RS 11D Nor Teal Blue. The interior and trunk of my 68 was covered heavy with brown primer. The heaviest was the back side of the dash. The rest of the interior looked like a combo of all the above photos.

I did check behind the seat but I don't see any crayon marks, but if they weren't putting the x code on the cowl tag yet would they write it behind the seat?
Yes, Jerry M. found it on my brothers early pre X coded Z when he had it inspected a couple years ago. Put a very bright light on and maybe a use little soapy wet rag to lightly clean the area. If that area has never been blasted, repainted or replaced it could be there. I watched Jerry do it. You have to look very hard on his car to see it but it is there.

Edit: Bryon could be right, I think my brothers car is a Oct. build if I remember correctly.

I have personally seen 2 pre X code cars that had the marks behind the rear seat. One car was in the 9N546xxx vicinity.

I don't know if this car would have that, since it is so early.
