VIN CALLENDER SEQUENCE VS COMPONENT PARTS
« on: February 19, 2010, 12:47:42 AM »
AS COMPONENT PARTS ARE MADE BY VENDORS,THEY ARE DATE STAMPED (CODED). THEY LATER ARIVE AT THE ASSEMBLY PLANT FOR ASSEMBLY.   I HAVE NOTICED A PATTERN .   SOME COMPONENTS ,LIKE (DIFFERENTIALS)  ARE DATED  1 MONTH  PRYER TO ASSEMBLY . ( HOODS ),ONLY 1 WEEK  PRYER TO ASSEMBLY.   COULD THESE COMPONENT DATES ,HELP DETERMINE WHEN THE CAR WAS ASSEMBLED ,IF THEY ARE ORIGINAL TO THE CAR?

Yes, but but my axle is dated 2 days before my car was built so you need to keep looking at component dates.

Only within a very wide range; inventory control was very crude in the 60's, and two cars coming down the line together could get some of the same parts dated a week or a month or more apart.

Please turn your "caps lock" key off - having all caps makes your post difficult to read, and all caps means you're shouting.

I have a rear stamped 4 months prior and confirmed on the POP. Not an accurate measure.
