hand written assembly line numbers
#1
my 72 Grandé has the numbers 46 and 2669 hand written in what appears to be a paint pen on the top of the radiator support. i suppose a line worker wrote them on thier in dearborn in 1972? wonder if anyone else has this and any idea what it means?

Haven't heard of any numbers like this from the factory. It could be a replacement radiator support from a junkyard. They usually mark them up before selling them.

Agreed, every part I've gotten from a junkyard has been mark in suck a way. I don't know how long paint pens last but I doubt it's 30+ years.
