I found this when cleaning up the 741 case from my 1970 Valiant, it is the first time I have seen an 8 3/4" center housing stamped like this.

Cool that is it a 3.23 with what may be the final assembly date of 3-23-70? If so, awesome coincidence. beer

Holy cow. Where is that car from that a marking like that, in that location, survived for 49 years?

That's really amazing. You'd think a paint daub in that location would be really fragile and likely to disappear, even if the car was well maintained. What a cool find.

It has paint daubs all over. It still has the factory broken off zerc fittings in the front suspension parts also.

I had to go back through old photos, this one was taken very close to 5 years ago, I just missed the stamped in numbers back then.

Has anyone else ever seen a date code stamp like this on an 8 3/4" housing? It is a new one to me, but if there is one, others are likely out there........

I think I’ve seen something similar on an LA built 71 340 Demon.

I’ll look through my pics later.

Here's a similar stamp that was on my 71 340 Cuda Convertible. The car has a 331 SPD. Differential is a 3.23 open with small u joints. Don't pay attention to the yellow paint blotches, these are overspray from some earlier body repaint.

Awesome!

Mine has a poor stamp for what may also be CD, but yours is upside down compared to mine.

Thank you!

Does anyone else have any other examples?

may be they wear tracking gear sets because of problems in production

I just found another one.

3.23 stamp again, but it is on a 742 case this time.

I'll have to clean it & likely soak it in Evaporust when time allows it so I can get a decent photo.
