While grinding and sanding, I found some old factory markings, in yellow grease pencil, on my front aprons. The writing on the left apron is clearly a "K", which I presume designates the car as a K-Code. The writing oon the right apron is not as clear...I can only see a "D". See pics below

I'm trying to be gentle when sand the paint off, but some of the writing is coming off with the paint.

Anyone know what was typically wriitten in these areas...or is it just the writings of some bored assembly line worker?

Thanks.

When I tore down my 64 1/2 Pace Car I found the words PACE CAR, the interior code (42) and the body color code (C - Pace Car white) written in grease pencil on the front of the radiator support in front of the battery area. There was not an engine code. If this car was Nightmist Blue that's probably what the K stands for. If it's a real K code that might be it too!

Another interesting thing I found under the original chassis black was the left front corner of the engine bay had Guardsman Blue paint UNDER the chassis black. Somebody cleaning their gun on the line perhaps???

It means "Knock Down", If your 67 was a Shelby that was a note to everyone on the line that some standard parts would not be installed. All Shelby's should have these markings, I also found the same thing during the restoration which waslocated on the drives side and the DSO marking on the Passanger side.
