Help with serial number

Does anyone know why the IRS bug pan I just got has a serial # on it that starts with 11614. The body has a side gas fill. Big pile of parts.
As far as I can see on the web that's a # for a 1966 swing axle car???
Any help would be appreciated.

Did you check to see if the IRS pivots were welded in?

What he was trying to ask you if the pan has been modified for IRS -- a lot of swing axle pans have had the IRS pivots welded in, so it could be a '66

Just take your finger and rub inside the tunnel near/around the numbers that's where you can find traces of the welding easier

stripped paint and felt inside tunnel around ser#

Still no indication that there was any thing out of the ordinary.
perfectly smooth as far as i could reach and some slight dimpling where the #s are.
????
All the welding and fitment is stock.
Crazy.
Will have the #s run to see whats up.

You're golden -- I wouldn't worry about it -- I'd say that the pan was modified for the IRS
