Here are some detail shots of a January '67 "DF" wheel. This is from an 03B NOR Z-28. These early wheels do not have the DF stamp on them. It's just left blank next to the valve stem hole, however the offset is the same as any DF wheel and it is naturally a 15x6 wheel. The stamp on the inside has "1" for the month of January and there is no year denoted. It is believed that the December '66 Z-28 rally wheel also has no DF stamp and just has the number "12" inside, to denote the month.

Yes, they seem to be Sept of '69 dated wheels.    perhaps service replacements?    There were some full size Chevys (Impalas as I recall) that also used a 15x6 ralley wheel in some years... I'm thinking '69 or '70?  but I've no idea if those may have been DF offset codes also???   I'm sure the '69 date is why those wheels are not priced much higher...

Yes, they are service replacement wheels made in 1969. By 1979 they still had service replacements but the part # and wheel stamping had changed (not DF). Even the way the wheel was made had changed.

The '69 and '70 full size passenger car 15x6 rally wheels are stamped "YS" and have a different offset from the "DF" rally wheels.
