It took considerable effort but the rear is:

BL 0402G2

I just cannot read the date because the casting is so rough.   I'm going to keep trying to clean it up so I can read it.  I saw CON1 on the other side.  Is the date code upside down, too?

I read that page in order to find the code on the axle tube.  I think the last two digits of the date code are 8 & 9.  I'm going to keep trying to clean it up to read it.  Does the axle code help?

Sorry, I somehow missed your post of the code.
BL is 3.07 12 bolt posi. Built April 2nd. Looks perfect for the car. Note that it is built in April like the engine.

The last major date to check would be the trans code on the trans pan.

This one was easy.  The trans code is:  Y9C03D.  I'm still trying to get the casting date for the center section of the rear.

That one looks fine too. March 3rd, day shift.

I wouldn't worry too much on the axle casting date. I don't think I've ever checked either of my cars. ;)

So Kurt, could one conclude that the car is number matching?

Yes (with the caveat that the pad stamping should be confirmed to be an original).

I'll try to post pictures of both the pad stamping and the trim tag.
