Were interior parts like dash pads date stamped somewhere?

My dash is in the kitchen and I just looked it over good. I don't see any numbers on it. I know my door panels were dated

The underside of my original 1968 dash pad has a white stamp that looks like 12/11/67  with some type of circular inspection stamp over it and my build was 3rd week of January 68.  Also had 632 in yellow marker which I am not sure what that is.  Door panels have ink date stamps on the inside of the panels

Here's an example, this one from an August of 1969 car:

I've seen date stamps on 68 dash pads, door panels, and date tags for the carpet.

My 68 dash and door panels have similar markings like the ones Mike posted.

Just "inherited" a dash pad from a friend and it has markings like Mike posted, as well.  Pretty faded, but it looks like 11/17/67 on a Norwood car with a late December build.  No inspection stamp.  It also has crayon markings of 6-0-? (can't figure out the last number). He has no idea if it is original.

Any ideas about how far in advance that interior pieces like a dash pad came into Norwood?

My 68 is a 12D LOS and the dash date is 11 9 67 for comparison. Can post a pic later if needed.

Please post a picture. That's a close timeline to the one I'm looking at.
