Upon inspecting all of the panels/parts of my car, there are date codes stamped on everything. An example would be 5 14 2B. I have always assumed that this would have decoded to May 14, (1965) station 2B. Can someone provide additional information? Last night, when I was 'crawling' under the dashboard, I noticed that the cowl was stamped. By the way, the date code on my door tag is 6/11/65 (borthday coming up!).

Thanks in advance...

I was told the last number 2B is the shift. I suppose that's hearsay, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

When I was dismantling my car, I realized that the date code I kept seeing was that day! I was dismantling my car on it's 34th birthday. Nice present huh?

You'll find that almost every, if not every, piece of sheetmetal on your car is date stamped.
