    I.D. numbers K - Frame Member question.

    anyone know where to find numbers for reference to check what I have.

    I sand blasted this K frame I bought from a guy who said it was from his B body.

    in the crown of the front center are the numbers stamped -
    0 4 7 0
    or
    C 4 7 0

    It has a tag welded on the right upside down 12 -


    before I begin to install this, just want to make sure its good for my 71 barracuda.
    I plan to install an 440.

    I have a second K member from a 73 cuda - in measuring all is close and seems the same,
    except for the out side holes and frame are apx 3/8 longer/wider.

    Thanks for any assistance -

    the center stamp should be the date code 4th 70 maybe.
    I have a 70 A66 340 PS Sway bar also has the no 12 tag

    The 12 did come from a '70 E body with 318, 340 or 383 from the factory. They show a different part number for the 440 but that's probably just because the 440 unit had a skid plate.

    Mine shows a "12" on the coin, reflecting an early 318, 340, 383 K frame as DetMatt1 expressed above.

    My A66 Challenger vert had a October 7 scheduled build date. My k frame was dated the 3rd week of October 1969.

    @parharamia, do you have a pic of the rest of the chart? I no longer have mine. I'm looking for the rest to 74. Thanks.
