 Undecided  I've seen a lot of restored '68s in magazines that have the "Paint, Trim, Body" letters stamped on the firewall above the heater core. Did all 1st-Gens have these markings? Any trace of these was long gone by the time I got my car in 1983, so I have no idea if it had them. They look trick in the pictures, and I've got old magazines from '67-'68 that show them clearly. But I also know the factory deviated on a lot of things! I've read that they all had them...the colors were different according to the assembly plant..etc. Help me, experts!  Grin

Only Norwood cars had them; my original 02D car has them on the driver's side.

So, John, exactly where are they stamped (on the firewall?) on the driver's side on a Norwood car?

My Norwood built 1967 Camaro RS did not have any PTB stamps under the hood. My car was original paint when I bought it.

I believe the different colors denoted different build shifts.

Mine are directly below the cowl tag - the "P" and "B" are almost gone, but the "T" is still visible.

Hotrod,

Here's a good example of why we should all go slow with the rattle can...

Amen, Phil! I soft-cleaned everything looking for stuff like this when I stripped my car, but in many places a previous owner had gone nuts with undercoating and if marks were there, they went when the undercoating came off! It even had undercoating on the A-frames and radiator support. Good for metal preservation, but bad for this kinda stuff.

i didnt think my car had the ptb stamps until i started the frame off on it last year. my ptb stamps were under the fenders on the firewall. if i knew how to post pictures i would put up a few. i spoke with jerry mac neish about it and he said alot of the 67's came this way. if you havent pulled the fenders off yet, they may be under there.

Does this mean that a 1967 LA built car would not have any PTB stamps?

    ...not that this answers your question, ...but my '67 (LOS) had no stampings anywhere (it was unrestored when I got it), ...and I believe that was the case for LA...

Here are pics from a 2nd original owner, unrestored Norwood built 69 Pace Car, assembled 03A.  The owner lives in a town outside of Indianapolis where I live.  I photo documented this car and hope to get many more pics in the future.

Note that the stamps on this car are on both sides of the firewall, and use a combination of green and red/orange stamps.  It is believed the stamp color related to the shift, thus, it could be assumed on this car that the paint "P" and body "B" inspection was done on 1st shift and stamped with green paint, and the final trim "T" inspection completed on 2nd shift stamped with red/orange paint.  Again, this is only speculation but it makes since given the build sequence followed at Norwood.

I also have photos of the original hood and trunk stripes.  Itís interesting to see how sloppy Norwood was back then when stripes were applied.
