I can only speak from a singular experience when I had the subframe out from under my 69 RS back in 2004.  I looked all over the subframe and did not find any markings, numbers, etc.  Quite different from GM A bodies that I've been involved with ('66 Chevelle and '67 GTO) where there were stampings and numbers all over the frame, including manufacturer, build date,  and partial VIN - but alas, nothing on the '69.

The painted-on marks are in front of the drivers side tire. There is a color stripe and a stenciled -on date code.

On a side note: Where can you buy the stancil and paint kit? The USCC used to sell one.
I also know of no VIN stamp or other real way to date a subframe.
