If you went to your local Chevy dealer in the late 60's or early 70's to buy a replacement for a broken or damaged piece of Camaro glass, would it have had the same markings as factory-fitted LOF or PPG glass, including a date code?

That's a great question, and one I don't know the answer to... as I've never had to do that.   But, I think I'd be pretty peeved if I bought a new Chevy, and it came in with a scratched, or cracked, or bubbled glass needing dealer replacement, and they replaced it with one that did NOT have the same markings...??

Back in the day the dealer would have replaced the glass before it went on the lot, and I highly doubt anyone would be looking at glass codes back then, if even realizing they were there.  Attention to details in restoring a car are much different than those of a new car buyer.

Thanks Guys, wasn't meaning cars on the lot though (although that is another similar scenario!); say you bought a car new, and then a couple of months later a piece of glass got damaged and you had to replace it, would the replacement piece from the dealer have similar manufacturer's markings and codes to factory-fitted pieces?

One might assume so, but I wouldn't be surprised if back in the day a dealer went through a local glass shop for a replacement, if the profit margin was better.
