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.
LOS and NOR data is intermixed and shows the same pattern.

11A  40 6N
??    52 N 6
02A   5 N 7
02C   5 D 7
02E   6 D 7  (stamped 7D6)

03C 11 N 7
04B   4 N 7

Here's a '67 for the list. Just pulled the tank last weekend on my '67 LOS 11A car. Code is 42  9D which doesn't seem quite right given the number 9. Could it be upside down and should be a 6?. Referencing some other posts -  the other 11A car listed  (40 6N) I believe is very close in production to mine - so go figure?

67rs327, Hi!  I'm Mike, the guy with the first tank on the list.    11A - 40 6N.  The plant production run # in upper right corner of my tag is A638, which would indicate it was actually built on the 1 st. of Nov.(per the A)  My car is also Bolero Red, unfortunately not as well optioned as yours.  It still has original 327 (was 2Bbl.,Powerglide) now built look just like a 302, "Day 2", with a built TH 350 and 4:11 12 bolt Posi.  Welcome, nice car!     BTW: my production run # is LOS  8031

Hi Mike. I remembered you from some postings last summer when I picked up the car and you mentioned they were born close together. My trim tag corner code is D671 and the production run # is  LOS 8461.  So very close.  I've been picking thru the car off/on all winter  - and will be sure to stay in contact as these cars I'm sure have a lot in common.

Chris,  now that you mention it, yes I do remember some posts back and forth.  Wow, 430 cars, that is close.  As for the # in upper right corner, Nov. 1st. was on a Tues., so your # starting with D should have been Fri. of the same week.  But the 430 they could have built in 1 or 2 days.  Yours had more options so maybe it got held up a little.

Not sure if it is relevant anymore with all the gas tank codes already in the database, but I got finally around to looking at the gas tank code of my 67 03C today and found 11 N 7 on the tank.  LOS built car, built 3rd week of March puts it right in a few days before assembly the way it looks.  Also, the tank is painted black (looks like factory as this car has a lot of originality to it.)  I see someone already has the same numbers in the list.  11 N 7 would be 11th week of 67 night shift I believe?  Just my 2 cents worth without inflation!  :)

Kurt.  You can add my 08A car to the mix.   Tank was dated 1 70.   I thought it was a replacement tank under warranty, as I did not know they started dating for 70 in Aug.
