I think I'd need a CIA computer to read it anyway.

Thanks for the data. Can you let me know if there are any casting numbers on these finned front drums of yours?

  Hello, I see you don't have a lot of 67's here, so I'll chime in.  My 11A  LOS built Coupe has the LF7 Engine and Manual Brakes, it has unfinned Drums both front and rear.

The front drums that were on my 68 RS are non-finned. The rears were finned but I don't believe they are original, they don't fit that well. The car is a 12D LOS. 327 2bbl Powerglide. Manual drum brakes and manual steering and no other significant optons. I can post the casting numbers if need be. Are there date codes on drums? Hope this helps.

My 1968 RS has unfinned drums front and rear, car is an 07E, I believe to have been built in the last week of production but I do not know that for sure the serial number is within of the last 300 of the end. I don't know if this helps. Darrell D
