    IMG_1950.JPG Anyone know what this means? stamped on the floorpan on the front passenger seat. Looks like K5 7584, with the K backwards.

    Most likely a date code and partial part number.

    Hamilton Stamping Plant 5th week of 1970. The other number may be a partial part number.
    That plant was located near Norwood.
    I'm assuming all the Camaro sheet metal was shipped to the L.A. assembly plant from there as well.
    Your body date code on the cowl tag should be near after the 5th week of the year. Maybe late Feb. or early March.

    If that is a "K", I know I saw that plant discussed here on this site. I can't remember what it was however.

    IMG_1964.JPG IMG_1961.JPG Thanks for the info. I will search for the discussion about the plant. It sure looks like a backwards "K" to me. The car was built in LA on March 11.

    stamp on the package tray starts "T 05". So it sounds like the process was: Unibody panels were stamped at various stamping plants and then brought together at a unibody assembly plant. So I could end up finding panels from several different plants as I strip the unibody?

    I thought I had identified the "T" plant at one time. Of course, I can't recall it now, but it was on the North side of Detroit. I have found H,K and T on my 1970.

    Ternstedt This is the only plant with a "T" that I could find.
