Plugwire date code
« on: June 05, 2018, 03:11:16 PM »
Hello
What would be the correct date code for the plug wires fore a GT 500 produced 21/2-1969. Fourth quarter of 68 or 1 quarter of 69?

I would suggest going with 4Q68 to be on the safe side. 1Q69 would be when the wires were made and not when they were shipped ,sent and inventoried at the engine plant ,installed on a engine ,engine shipped to the assembly plant before being installed in a car that was finished on 2/21/69 . I am not saying it isn't possible but less probable then a 4Q68 IMHO.
