I have a 1967 Galaxie XL - the data plate reads:
Body - 63C
Color - Y
Trim - 8A
Date - 12U
DSO - 75
Axle - 8
Trans - U

I 've been told the 63C is the Fastback, the color is Dark Moss Green, and the trans is C6 select shift. Is this right? I still need the rest decoded. Thanks for all of your help!!

Ok, NOW I am really confused LOL!!!
I have had this car for 13 years...minus the 3 year stint it did in a guys shop...when i sold it to him rather than let it rot in my back yard(underpayed=broke) until I Became an Apprentice at NNS Shipyard) (I love the car and won't have it abandoned)..He ripped the interior out to do the floor pans..not having any regard for any piece parts.. but saved everything.. Anyhow...I searched high and low after my rear healed from the kicking I gave it...and I bought the car back..almost double what I sold it for(a song)...Long story short...

SOOO..I have a 1967 XL that was built in July of 1968? That explains my C8AE-H heads with a C7AE-9425-E intake....Wow....weird! You all are being very helpful. I truly thank you all.

Do you need me to retype the info I deleted or did you save it?

It would be helpful if you re-type it. I will then save it. Or you can PM me with it. Though I think others may benefit from it if they have any similar information on their data plate and such.
