 Would a March 19 build date on a rear diff. be too late for a 04D car? thanks

Depends on what year and plant.
If you're buying a rear for a car, you'd have to look for a while to find much closer than that.
If it's supposed to be original, I'd have to have more data......

Boy did I screw this post up! The build date on my 69 camaro is 03D not 04D. I will try again. Is a March 19 build date on a 12 bolt housing  too late for a 69 Camaro with an 03D on the cowl tag? Thanks in advance for any help.

In 1967, the 19th was Sunday of the third week of March; in 1968 it was Tuesday of the third week of March; and in 1969 March 19 was the Wednesday of the third week of March.  Following link will give you calendar info for 1967-1969:  http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/custom.html?year=1969&country=1&cols=2&hol=25&moon=on&doy=on.

Your build date of 03D indicates that Fisher Body began building the body sometime during the 4th week of March; i.e. definitely sometime after 20 March.   When the car went through final assembly needs to be further analyzed.  The VIN sequence can help.  See the following:  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1556.0

Still looks good to me.

Datewise, that looks good/better.
What's the axle application code? What's the VIN?

Real close, but doable. :)

I take it that it's an L78 car?
