Can't see the head markings but they are flanged bolts.  Check link....

The bolts in the link do have the 3 lines, but like you said, can't see the head.  I'll call and ask and report what I find.

I looked at AMK bolts until I was cross-eyed.  Thank you much Jerry!

Here is a pic of the orig. flanged bolt vs. the AMK TR replacement which is not correct in configuration as John mentioned.
Good side by side comparison with the AMK 'TR' non-flanged bolt to the right.

 Why would these bolts be any different than so many others on the car as far as having different manufacturers markings?

Because the flange was necessary to be able to get the bolt and nut started with a standard socket.  The bolts go in from underneath up in to a deep recess.  If you ever tried installing somthing like that without a shouldered bolt, then you know you have to stuff one or two (sometimes more depending on your socket) nuts in the socket to keep the bolt from going so far down that you can't get enough threads through the other side to get the nut started.  They couldn't just use a longer bolt, or it would have interfered with the floor of the car after install.

 I meant more for head markings and not the style.
I would think there could be other manufacturers making the same style so the marking would be different.

Chevrolet used at least three different suppliers for every fastener, to avoid production interruptions, and they were stocked in the plants by PART NUMBER, so the same fastener could have three (or more) different headmarks, especially between Norwood and Van Nuys; nobody in the plants paid any attention to headmarks - only part numbers.

My point was showing an original bolt as discussed with what comes from AMK. Wrong configuration. I think the question might be for members to look at their cars and note what other shouldered bolt suppliers were used. Be good to know! Have seen the same bolt 'A' bolt on 69's as well. Do not recall anything else being used at this time but sure there has to be:)

 I realize this topic is mainly '69 but for '67 the below picture shows a non-shoulder bolt taken from my survivor you may find of interest. This is on an L35/TH400 car.
It must have been fun installing these from the bottom up (unless they had shallow sockets) which llikely accounts for the type change in later years.
