Urban lengend

Did 1969 camaro's have a date code stenciled on the driveshaft? Is this just another urban lengend?

I have seen stripes on the tube and dabs on the U-joint yokes, but never a stenciled date.

What about a date code stamped into the driveshaft? My 67 L35/M40 has one?

I've never seen any kind of date, stamped, painted, or otherwise, on any driveshaft on Camaros or Corvettes; only paint ID rings.

I have seen a unrestored 69 Chevelle with the part no. stenciled on the drive shaft. There was a long debate on it and some believe it was an early service replacement drive shaft and it came that way from the service parts counter?

The stamp on my driveshaft reads 3307 and is on an 04A built L35/M40 0-1 Indy pace car. I also found a similar stamp 0330 on the subframe when I cleaned it up? Ironically the QW 3.07 posi  rear axel was assembled 0330G1. Dunno who done it but its on there :)
