Hi Mike,
  Yes, I attached a photo to the post. I see it on my monitor, but if there is a problem , I'll attempt to post it again. Otherwise, it looks just like your photo.

Yeah Mike I'm sorry I didn't "Quote" you so you would know. The pic shows up but on my monitor it's a little too big to fit so I have to scroll it over to see the paint stripe is what I meant.

Heres another 67 LOS Pacecar stamp.  Believe its on the passenger side frame rail under the door; it also has the orange stripe on the outer face of the frame infront of the drivers wheel.

That was strange. My IE browser at work didn't display the pic but now I see it at home.

Thats sort of what we are trying to figure out.  Which ones had it, and where is it.  67's seem to have them on the passenger side rail in the vicinity of the firewall bushing support, so far the 69's seem to have them on the left front frame horn near the radiator bushing support hole, but thats only from 4 or 5 cars total, way to early to say anything definative.

Thank you guys for pointin this out - I knew/found the orange stripe, but never knew about the number
unfortunately 35 years of road grime and the like have not been kind
I see three distinct white marks but they are all illegible. I used dish soap to find the markings, but alot of the black paint is also gone, and all that is left is rust
