My unrestored February '68 built Norwood car has orange PTB stamps on both sides of the cowl.  Still very clear.  I am trying to figure out a way to preserve them when the time comes to restore the engine compartment. Smiley

Just curious, is your grille all black or does it have the horizontal chrome stripes on it.  Thanks.

Hi Steve,
Yes mine has the silver, but a lot of it has worn off.

Thanks for your response Kevin.  We are trying to get some info for this thread  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1087.0 and saw your car was close to the dates and I just had to ask.  Smiley
You do believe it to be original to the car then....correct?

Steve

 ...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...

Kevin,
I have seen some PTB stamps on LOS built 67 Camaros but they are on the firewall under the fenders. where you can't see them. Take an inspection mirror and see if you can see them.

 ...I just happened to see some 'writing' on the firewall of the '67. If I remember correctly it was a "43", ...hey maybe Richard Petty signed it  Shocked  ...I'll have to look further to see if there are any stampings... Wink

X-77,

Thanks for emailing me those "under the fender" stamping pictures.  You really ought to post them in this thread to make it complete.
Thanks again!

I had posted this picture about a year ago in a previous thread.  Since we are discussing firewall markings of various types, any thoughts as to what the "2" means? Huh  1969 RS Base Coupe, Norwood 01C build.

According to a Norwood quality control I interviewed back in the late 1980's, PTB stamps designated paint body and trim inspection before the front fenders were installed on the car.  Most of the '68 and '69 cars have the stamps in sight but many of the 67 cars (not all) have the stamps behind the front fenders.  It was about 1987 when many Norwood plant workers transferred to the Baltimore plant due to the closing of Norwood.  Talked with quite a few of the Norwood workers during that time.
