Interesting on the stamping Milo. My 68 GT500 has a build date of 2/20/68 and is stamped the same way, one digit off.

Are you saying your intake is stamped?

Sounds like someone had fat fingers at the factory that week. Have you checked the transmission to confirm that it has the same mistake?

Mine is, yes.
