Thank you for the pic.....much appreciated

Is it correct that the BE rears, the casting dates would be relative close to the stamp date.

I looked at one recently and the casting was B28 and the stamp was BE 0608 -

I'll let others with more knowledge speak to what is "normal" relative to cast date vs stamp date. My housing was cast the last couple of days of April so about 9 weeks apart.

I ask because the rear side of this housing was painted orange so don't want to duplicate if it was part of that paint job.
Also curious what the "58" represents above the cast date tag on the housing. Anyone know?
R68GTO: You are correct that the u-joints were held by straps & bolts for the '69 model year rears. The rear of the axle housing painted orange and the orange dots on the axle flange were done later by an owner as the dots are holes in the rear brake drums, (rear drums were probably painted orange also).

Started working on the wiper motor today among other things. Anyone tell me how to decode this tag? Seems to be an original foil tag that is on the wiper motor housing. Covered in black paint...used some acetone to get to the printing.

Default It's Rat's Nest's Birthday today!

According to NCRS, 9/26/69 is the day my car was built. It was a Friday back then.....probably why they missed the window track mounting nut on the rear drivers side qtr window
Here's a shot in her birthday suit along with a couple of shots just playing around with the engine mockup. Whatcha think.....Stock or Super Stock?

Nice to see some new progress pictures. Those white headers look great. I wish I had the nerve to do that with mine.

Default More progress....

My brother and I worked on my 4 speed pedal setup today and got it re-assembled for the most part. I think it turned out pretty nice - all original pcs. except the pedal pads - those are repro. Question for the experts....would my X44 car have originally had any pedal trim on the parking brake, clutch, or brake pads?

X44 did not affect interior trim level or badging. Bright pedal trim was included with Z23 Special Interior Group along with the assist handle and panel plus additional woodgrain trim. Z87 Custom Interior included Z23.

The car does not have the handle on the passenger side of the dash so it should not have the bright pedal trim.
