Build date 06A X66 396
Casting number 860NF
Assembly stamp BU 1126 G1 E
Casting date K228

Casting and assembly date look fine and thanks for submitting. Is that the original axle for your car? If so, we may want to document it more. That is a fairly large spread from axle assembly to your car assembly but it is possible. Would you happen to have the Protect-o-Plate for your car?

The thread is mostly concerned with the time frame of axles cast or assembled from about May of 69 through the end of the model year.

The CHP report for the car states that he has seen late build examples with rear axle stamps with 5 months spread, and could not say for certain the axle is original to car but was possible. He did certify that the axle stamps are legitimate and not re-stamps and the car was born with 12 bolt. I do not have the POP for the car.

Thatís a 7 month spread. Possible. Just wondered if there was solid proof, because itís a potential area to learn.

It's not original. Axles were very tight in early 69. There is one 06A car in the database with an axle that is in March (and not a common axle code). All the rest are May / June axles.

I am still EXPLORING the thinking

"trying to clear out parts toward the end of the model year, because the system was not a first in / first out setup."


Not saying that is the case....
