Kurt,

I agree with you, I think mine was replaced too. Based on the dates. I guess the dealer smeared the undercoating on the tank?

The code is stamped on the front RH (driver's side) corner flange of the tank.  You will need to remove any paint or rust to expose the date code.

Good Luck.

The RH side of the car is the passenger side, and the LH side is the driver's side; RH and LH are as viewed from the driver's position. :-)

I finally took the time to to check the other tank I have access too. It is an 11D date code and the tank has a 69 51 stamped on it. I notice others have one upside down number on their tanks. It could be that the 5 and the 1 were installed backwards and should have been 69 15 which lines up better with other submitted info. On my 02D car I always thought the 29 69 meant the 29th day of 1969 which fits with a 02D build date. But that is obviously not right. My guess is it refers to the 29th week of gas tank production for 1969 production and probably started at the end of July or beginning of August 1968.

Sorry...yes, it's the "LH" or "driver's" side of the tank.

I just got the date code off my 04A Norwood '69: 33 69.

The number seems to fit well with previous reports.
