1968 Powerglide Pan Number
« on: September 26, 2020, 10:02:48 PM »
We found this on the side of my 1968 powerglide pan: C8M10D and I'm assuming it's a date code, but haven't had any luck in finding if it is - it seems to have too many digits. Can anyone tell me what it says ? It is NOT the original engine, so it might not be a 1968 powerglide - THANKS !!!

I found one source on the CRG pages and I think is says ( maybe !!! )

"C" for Cleveland Powerglide
"8" for Model year of car
"M" for August
"10" for day of month
"D" for day shift

My car was built on September 23rd 1967, so if this is correct and the "August" "10" is for August 10th of 1967, then I answered my own quest - do you all agree ? Could this be the original transmission that came with the 230 base six cylinder that my car left the factory with ? ( it now has a 1968 327-300 in it ) I wasn't sure if the powerglide in a six would be the same for the small V8's.

THANKS, Kurt . . it's nice to know after 52 years, it still has the original transmission.
