View Full Version : Factory assembly markings

03-29-2016, 06:37 PM
I have been cleaning up the ´67 Coronet I bought last August. In many ways the car is in a survivor state. Enclosed are two of the factory markings I have found so far. I also found a paint stamp. It had the number "13" What do these numbers mean? Is it an inspector´s number or a number for some assembly issue?

Cool! Share all you can. Granted not everyone is interested in over the top detailing like that but the few who are find those pics invaluable!!

"73" is tire size = 7.35x14

"J" not sure but I bet has to do with wheel width

Mine says R
77J it was ordered with red lines

That's right, I think it was for the spare.
