Can someone decode this date code. The K frame is in a 1968 Road Runner. It's stamped upside down so I flipped one of the photos to make it easier to read.

It appears to be 53 081

I'll check again against my files tonight back at the house - I also have a 68 Road Runner. Best I think is 53rd day of 1968, the "1" is for the shift. Makes it around February 22, 1968
I thought I had some archived pictures of the K-frame date code but can't find any... I do have a file with every code I found on my car - K-frame = 93 68 1. I crossed those numbers to 1 April 1968, 1st shift. My build date was 504 - May 4th, 1968
