Hello all, new to this site. Great info. I think I have a tank not submitted yet, AND not listed in the compilation. I have a 10A LOS 68 L35/M40 car with a tank date code of 67 42. In addition, after cleaning it, I've discovered production marks on the right top side of a handwritten "5" over "6". If this is a duplicate, sorry. I may have missed it in reading the the 16 pages....Thanks again, GREAT SITE!

Here's the latest and greatest compilation.
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:
11A  42 6D  (stamped 42 9D)
