This is a bit off topic but any ideas what that red wire is for going through the firewall all by itself? I am used to seeing a tach wire look like that but it should be brown.

Carl, I think it has to be a 10g power accessory feed wire from the horn relay buss, either for windows or seat. Power top would have a breaker I think.

Ok, that could be. I am used to seeing those accessories use an orange wire with a black stripe, often attached to a circuit breaker somewhere towards centre from the brake booster. I bet you are right though, the wire is too heavy for an average electrical item.

          Well, sort of, lol...but don't look to close at the coil wire, when I first got the car, in haste when doing a quick tuneup I replaced it...and pitched the original before I knew what I was looking at. What a bonehead! A lesson to be learned when you get a unmolested car I guess.

A small firewall detail perhaps worth mentioning.

On a few 67 Oshawa cars anyway,
I've seen what appears to be brown primer sprayed somewhat crudely across the build plate without any tape masking.
The body colour comes on top of the primer and the plate appears to have been masked slightly better at this point.
The DumDum must have been added at final assembly.
It appears these plates were riveted on at the early body build and paint stage.
And some type of crude mask was attached at two different stages.
At first glance you'd think you were actually looking at a aftermarket underhood paintjob.

Yes, I've noticed that on a number of other cars too.

Certainly detailing was not foremost on the assembly lines.

As tacky as that data plate looks, It is factory correct. Red oxide was the primer color back in the day,hardly ever used anymore.{notorious for bleeding and hard to cover}

I've seen these markings on various cars. I was wondering what the actual "value" of these markings might be? (not a smart alec remark). 
I was told that they are of significance with "totally unrestored" vehicles..,,original paint,..  etc.  Do the numbers have any other significance or value? 

Why would someone hesitate to paint over them on a vehicle that is being restored.?

My firewall markings: Sideways "R", then written over top of it is "xPRB" or "xPR8", then beside that is "307-1-8", then below that is "7447" (which denotes a 2 dr. sports coupe).

I heard of people taking pictures of these before a paint job. Then they duplicate them afterwards so it looks like there were always there.

we did some firewall detailing on clints 69 beaumont this weekend and we found a 51 on the firewall under the driver s fender his car is code 51 liberty blue



I found the paint code 52 (Matador Red) on my 69 when I was cleaning up the firewall as well. Mine was beside the wiper motor towards the left side of the car.  This marking was not visible until the black paint was removed from the firewall. The markings are on the primer, not the black paint that is applied later to cover up the overspray from the body colour. 
 I also found another marking to beside the heater blower motor opening that was covered by the outer heater box.
 I didn't put them back on because they were not visible when the car was built. I took pictures for later reference.
