1ST GTO Engine Date Code Help

Just got a 1967 GTO and not sure of the engine date codes for my car.The code on the Distributor pad is L 036, but the invoice date from the PHS is Nov. 9,1966. Is this a correct date for the engine and car build date? Thanks!!

Yes, in 67 they did not use the letter "I" for a month code, Your date code is Nov 03 1966, a week before the build date. The engine unit number on the front of the engine under the letter code should match the engine unit number on the PHS billing history.

A= Jan
B= Feb
C= March
D= April
E= May
F= June
G= July
H= August
J= Sep
K= Oct
L= Nov
M=Dec

Thanks for your quick response! Now that "L" code makes more sense and the sequence number on the engine also matches the PHS information.The engine is correct!!
