I added a summary to the first post of this thread. :)
Here's the updated 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.

Don't think I added mine. Early 1969 Nor 11A stamped (12-69).  Barley readable. George

I have an original tank in my car and it is covered with a really thick coat of dealer installed undercoating. Its a Canadian car with the undercoating option on the options sheet. Should I remove the undercoating or keep it that way? I am not crazy about the look. It is just a 6 banger car. I would like to have a nice clean tank as the cars has just been painted. I have a new tank I can install, but is there any point keeping the original and does anyone care if this car retains its original tank. I was thinking of saving all of the orginal parts since this car is very original currently. Pretty well everthing for the most part is original except tires, paint, front windshield, some hoses and hose clamps etc.

Here is a Pic of my tank. Car is 11C. It does not seem to match the tank chart.

Thanks Kurt, that would explain the mystery. I could not make out the first 1 at all.

Here's mine from my LOS 68 SS (possibly SS/RS?)
Build - 11B
Tank code- 68  15

FYI.
I've re-painted the tank silver now, with black straps, but when I paint stripped it, the tank appeared to have (under a few coats of overspray) original factory black paint.
Cheers,
Ue.
