    Hello everyone
    I have a question concerning the restoration of an evaporator box for a 1960 GS 455
    The car paperwork from Sloane says it was built in the third quarter of 1969
    Based on this all of the parts are naturally date coded the same way (distributor, etc.)
    I was just wondering about the Harrison sticker that goes on the evaporator box. Should this be date coded for 1969 or 1970?
    No doubt the parts that make up the box are all from 1969 but the unit WAS actually made for a 1970 car.
    Another example would be the VIN which codes to 1970 but the car was made in 1969
    I was not sure if GM did it that way and said these boxes were built for 1970 cars so date code them accordingly, or just date code them for when they were produced. I just want to make sure I install the correct sticker when the box is restored.

    Nearly half the 70 models were built in 69. Answer 1970 decal
