70 0335 - Reference numbers related back to the plants broadcasting system. Placed on the trim tag for use by the plants workers in identifying this body. Mostly by workers in the body bank which was a large staging area for the final assembly line. The bodies were built in other areas of the plant and the end of the body line fabrication ended in a body bank. There they chose vehicles to release to the final assembly line based of work rules so as to balance work loads on the line. So to not overload certain operations with to many many higher optioned cars in row, they balanced the work load so the line worked smoothly or as smooth as possible.
