The gas tanks are dated with a week and year code.
67 has a calendar week code. 16 D 7 would be the 16th week of 67, day shift. 40 6N would be 40th week of 66, night shift.
The format changed in 68 and 69 to have the week counted from the beginning of the *model* year. The extended 69 model year used tanks dated for the 70 model year.
LOS and NOR data is intermixed and shows the same pattern.

67:

How does a week 49, Dec 5-11 1966, tank get into an 11B NCRS dated 11/25/1966 car?

I thought it was original to the car.

I did notice that, but didn't have time to think about it.
Strange. Maybe it's actually 46 6. They clearly had issue with proper orientation of characters.
