Decode my car...
« on: May 30, 2012, 03:41:39 AM »
ST    69                12437NOR338656  BDY

TR    722               59  S                   PNT
05E                       X55

Any information or help decoding this cowl tag is appreciated. Car is very solid, mostly original minus correct engine and 4 speed trans. Would like to find a "Period" correct drivetrain for this car. Factory 12 bolt appears to be in place. As it is a BM coded 12 bolt, once again thanks for any help.

Thanks X-77! But im back again with another decode question.

Axle code comes out: BM 0429G1 *passenger front axle tube*

Right side "pumpkin" 1N00

06849

Left side, well.... You tell me if you can read it.


Also, do these U-Joint number mean anything/ relation to my car? Anyway to save/convert it?

SNOOP, if you clean up that casting date, it looks like C 4 9. march 4, 69. BM shows 3:31 12 bolt

My X55 came with the same rear gear. I "think" this was the default gears.
