I have a friend that has a 69.  It has SS emblems on it, but that's not to say it is one.  It's nothing special, he races it and it has a 427 in it and he's not worried about originality.  I don't know much about the 69's, but I looked at his TT and it's a LOS car.  I then looked in Jerrry's book and it says all LOS cars had the "early" style TT and no X codes.  According to his example, there is nothing on them below the PNT code.  Well, this one has what looks like an i or he says an Angel with a dot on top and 080 next to it.  Sorry but that's all us two blind codgers could come up with.  Any ideas what this i and 080 is below the PNT?

Looks like this pic?  The following is from CRG data.

The LOS (Los Angeles/Van Nuys) body scheduling code is a letter followed by one to three digits, e.g., F103. Based on data analysis only (there is no GM documentation yet available that describes this code) - but with consistent application to thousands of datapoints - CRG believes the code was used by LOS Fisher Body (and other plants that built multiple carlines) to aid in scheduling the body build order.

Yes.  His isn't an S, but could be A or some other letter that we can't quite make out.  I thought at first D80, but he says it definately an 080.  I skipped over that part of the TT on CRG as I thought it was about X codes.  Thank-you.

Additional info.


This letter + 1 to 3 digits was on every car built at that plant.  I have seen them on full size Chevys also
