What's the rest of the code? It wouldn't be BV0923G would it?

I was thinking the writing on the inside could have been the axle date.
No way to tell now....

Ok no one has seen that writing on the inside before??? Why would someone take the time to write the September 1968 date? Could this be the first one of that color produced? Maybe this is something to look for in the early 69 cars? The 1st is maybe the 1st shift or first run? B/SS/37 = Base /Super Sport/ 3 7 = Z28 (style trim and not) this is quite the curiosity, even if the guy decided to eat his lunch in that car and thought "hmm let me make write that his is the first green one Im doin" Maybe there is the the 1st blue and first red etc out there. Is this a Los  or Nor car?

All the writing I have ever seen on these cars was done in crayon, not magic marker. IMHO it is not from the factory.

Lots of maybes there.  It looks nothing like the known markings from the assembly lines, where cars were rolling down the line and markings were a quick scrawl with a crayon or a paint marking.   IMHO it's too new in appearance, too long and wrong format, and was not a factory marking.  I highly doubt someone in an assembly line would go to the trouble to write 1969CHEV when it was already obvious.

If '69 chevy' was written in marker on a floor hump, it was probably written by the fella in the scrapyard when he cut it out of the first car it was in..?  Smiley

It does resemble salvage yard markings, but most yards I remember used white or yellow crayon.  And yes I have bought a car from the scrapper, and put it back together with other parts from the same yard.
