I have been restoring a 69 COPO for one of the local's. Thought you might like checking out this marking I found on one of the front fender extensions.
As you can see the mark is "427 M" any ideas on what the M stands for ? I'm thinking 427 engine Manual trans ?
It is a Hugger Orange Double COPO Norwood 4C car, To bad, no paper.

I doubt it is for Manual trans. That wouldn't affect sheetmetal. Could be a code for something, like which emblem to use or ??.

Ive found markings on those panels on quite a few cars.  And they've all been written on after paint, unlike the firewall markings.  Found "GR" on the Gold RS Z Im building. I never really understood why there would be markings on those panels, since they really arent specific to any options.

The emblem suggestion is interesting, but there arent any emblems on that panel.  Unless maybe it was written after it was attached to the fender?Huh

The complete front doghouse was painted by Chevy (not Fisher) and had to meet up with the body. That panel was where they chose to write codes, for whatever reason.

The marks you guy's have seen in the past one the fender extension, were they upside down in relation to the finished car, like this one?
