I have an 11D Z/28 car and my grease pencil says DG3. I have a dark green interior. Another early car I saw has an R1. I guess red interior X11 car. Maybe the same person or shift.

I have an X77 Hugger Orange Z and have an X7 on my bulkhead, and found "ORN" or "ORG" on the firewall. My memory is a little fuzzy this morning.

Just checked my 11C 69 Z/28 and there is an LG7 on the bulkhead. I guess this stands for "light green X77". My trim tag is 721 (medium green interior)

so all you need to see the marks is remove the rear seat, correct?

Yes - pop out the rear cushion, then remove two bolts through the tabs on the bottom of the rear back cushion and lift it off its hanger brackets.

The reddish color on V1009DZ's pic, is that the factory primer or what?  In Jerry's book he said floor pans could be semi-gloss black, mine were the color of V1009DZ's rear bulkhead.

Yup, that's factory primer.

Just folded down the seat in my 12B RS/SS and found a small X 1. There is no X code on my trim tag. Also, there is almost no red primer behind/under my seat or under the carpet. Mostly body color.

That's because it has a fold-down rear seat back, and that area is exposed when the seat is folded down.

Hello to all, since I'm new here, I need some help with my 69 Camaro.  I just recently started a restoration and I've found what appears to be a yellow crayon mark on the bulkhead between the passenger compartment and the trunk, it is X1, does anyone know what this mark might have indicated?  Thanks in advance....Clint

Pace cars have X0 on them (I assume to indicate the need for Z28 style stripe override).  I have never looked at mine to see if its there or not, but next time the seat is out I will.  Don't know if anyone has ever looked on a Z10 (at least I don't recall a discussion on it) maybe they have an X0 as well.

Dean,

Several years ago I had my seat out to install a new shelf.  I don't recall seeing an X mark.  During the holidatys I'll take it off and take a look.

I have not heard definative info on these crayon marking anomolies. I have a '69 Norwood 10A (1968) with a "LG7" on the bulkhead.  This car had a "Light Green" comfortweave interior originaly. Is anyone tracking these data points? I have a picture somewhere if needed.

I have a 10C (1969) X11 car with no marking behind the seat.  The only "graffiti" present are what's left of the PTB stamps.  Is is possible to see the faint outline of an extra stray "T" from the PTB on the driver's side of the firewall.

Is that a Norwood car or LOS?

Yes, mine's a Norwood car, and it currently resides not five miles as the crow flies from where that plant used to be.

Interesting.

I was guessing the code anomolies such as mine were an "early" thing, but based on his "normal" looking codes that theory goes away. Our cars are only a week apart.

Maybe it had something to do with specific interior colors or combinations?  We may never know for sure.

Yes, until recently I assumed only cars with X coded trim tags had the crayon markings. Then someone on this site mentioned that his early car (close to my build date) had the markings, so I decided to check my car to see if I had them. Sure enough they are there. I  had the car for 25 years  before finding this out. I do have an X code, it's just not on the trim plate. My package shelf doesn't look so great, but I'm glad it has never been replaced. The markings might have been lost if the shelf had been replaced.
