Help with Wheel date codes.

Ok, i have done some research but cant find much. I need a set of XT wheels for my big block car. First a little background, I inherited the car from my late father and through the many discussions we had, asked him what kind of wheels were on it when he bought it. He said the ugly dog dishes. So the car was built the first week of Novemeber. Now everything that he accumulated has a 68 date code, because thats what was one the car as he took it off. (he still had some original parts that he took off when he went to a 427) So I got that covered. Now the question is, did XT wheels for a 69 camaro have a K18 date code for a early build (say aug, sept 68 to dec 31 68) or were they all stamped K19? Just to reclarify. Dates are just made up too. they could be anything.

Car built NOV 1 1968. Should XT code wheels say 10-16-8 K18
or should they look like this: 10-16-8 K19?

I have the original alternator, fan/clutch, starter, smog equip and distributor.
Parts aquired are block, heads, intake, carb.
All of these dates are late sept oct 68.

Any help would be and will be appreciated.

Yes, they would be date K 1 8.
First question is where was the car built?? NOR or LOS??
Early LOS cars like mine have had IT coded 14x7 steel wheels.
My car is 11B.

Early XT's are very hard to find.

Re: Help with Wheel date codes.

Its a norwood built car. 11A is on the cowl tag. Lemans blue, black interior, white hockey stick L34 car. Bought when he was 18 in 1972. I have lots of old pictures with him and that car. Plus it has all the big block signs. Paint/body and interior are what is on it now from when he bought it in 72. he was in the process of returning it to its original self, so thats kind of become my project. I rolled it to 67000 original miles at dads funeral. Seems like anything late 68 is harder to find...
