That's the # on mine.  It's one of the 67 leftover parts used for my build date.  http://www.pozziracing.com/camaro_steering.htm#Steering_linkage

There is a salvage yard near where I live that has a many older cars with the many “typical” parts still intact.

During the restoration of my 69 RS Z, I spent a day at this yard, look for a few odds and ends, and noted the date codes on various items vs. the build date of the car for reference.  My notes were taken 12/18/97.  I can not verify if these steering boxes were ever replaced and original to the car, so take this info as reference only.

The box assy date code were all stamped on the al. box cover, in the machined pad area on the RH (passenger side) of the box.  Two (2) of the covers still had the oval yellow decal toward the back LH side area of the cover under a layer of grease and dirt.  Sorry I did not have a digital camera back them or I would have photo documented the data codes and boxes. 

Here is the list:

Car      Build Date                   Steering Box Date   Separation (months)
69 Firebird      11A      277 8        1
68 Firebird      03C      031 8                    2
68 Impalla      10C      280 8      same month
68 Impalla      tag missing      235 7      ?
71 Pontiac Pass. Car   10C      284 1      same month
66 Pontiac Pass. Car   10D      256 5      1
66 Chevelle Malib   12C      399 6       over 365, 399 may be wrong or a stamp error
74  Nova      10A      240 4      2
69 Pontiac Pass. Car   07E      171 9      1
68 Chevelle Pass Car   05B      078 8       2

My 69 Z      05A      081 9      2
