I've got a 10-Bolt Rear I'm trying to Decode. Casting Number is 3833443, Axle Code DB 0415 which tells me it's a 3.36 assembled on April 15th, but I'm a little puzzled on the Date Code. I can read the D fine (April), looks like a 5 for the Day (which co-responds to the assembly Code), but the last number, very hard to read, looks like it could be a 4. My question is, could a '65 Rear be possibly assembled as early as April of '64?

Thanks.

As you probably know, the 64 Impala used a different design axle altogether. I can't see how an April 1964 axle ends up in your car, unless they started tooling up for the 65 model way early. It's always interesting to research the history of these cars. Can you ell by the VIN if yours is a very early 65?

EDIT: Went back and re-read your post, sounds like you have an axle housing but not necessarily the car it goes with?

Right, I got the Rear but not the car.
