    The 09C on my trim tag and the 00008 body number indicate a third week of September 1968 build. So I suppose I need something like an 8H or 8J.

    EDIT: OR 8G

    (Correct me if I am wrong on any of this.)

    So you ended up getting that 68?

    Steve,
    With a 9c build date starter should be 9a, 9b and maybe even 9c depending on week built if I’m reading your post right.

    Hey, I aint the expert. I believed the earlier units would be in the desired range. No?

    I think it depends on what date code people are looking for as to what is desired.

    No, definitely looking for 8h or 8j.

    EDIT: OR 8G.

    I misread what you were trying to ask,. I thought you were asking what model years/date codes are more desired, not desired for your actual car. - Sorry

    IMO the correct starter would be date coded 3 weeks to 2 months earlier than your build date of your car.

    No prob -- I am in a permanent state of confusion about most of this stuff anyway.

    Yeah, car is a mid Sept 1968 build, hence looking for 8h (August 1968) or 8j (Sept 1968). I suppose I should also include 8g (July 1968).

    Stupid Thread Title says 1969. Wish I could change that...
