    At least I THINK the second picture is a paint marking.
    It's all very cryptic to me.
    Especially the yellow swirly thing on the rear center back side.
    All nicely preserved by oil build up.
    I do like the "H" though.:)

    pretty well preserved inspection and build marks. The 593 is what I call a rack # so they know what diff to pull for the build, if its like the transmission it is also found in the build sheet.

    There are some reference books out there that can tell you what each of those marks are. If I remember right, mark workman on graveyard cars pulled one out and was going over the marks on an episode.
