I have stripped my 66 GT to detail the engine compartment and undercarriage. It appears to have "GT" written on the front of the radiator support. Has anyone seen this before? It also has the letter "D" written in several places as well as the number 755 on the front support? What do these signify?

I found similar information on my radiator support when I stripped it. Mine had the body color, interior color, engine, etc. written on the front of the radiator support. Mine is a Dearborn car from late 65 (July 2 build date) and I think that Dearborn printed the assembly info on the radiator support in lieu of using a buck tag like Metuchen used. The 755 marked on the lower support is the rotation number of the car. Not only does this this give you information on the car, but also lets you know that your car is a real GT and you've got proof.

Here is a pic of my 64.5 after we blasted all the paint off of it...

On my car, it starts with a C322 - which I am told is just a code number
for a particular place in the assembly area where the car was welded, or
assembled, or some such thing.

76A = standard convertible interior
M = wimbledon white
86 = black vinyl interior
PT = power top
BL = either "backup lights", or "black" for the top color - not sure
