Superbrik,
I am assuming you have the matching engine and gearbox on the COA? Aluminum case engine? This whole debate about the year of the car can be put to rest with that data.

Car has been reprinted, why? I'm wondering if the car was rear ended and was converted to lwb with factory fenders as part of the repair. Good time to paint it to.

My '68T had 42k mi on it. But was repainted, and made to look like a '73 with cookie cutters and a ducktail. I don't have details of the accident on my car other than it was front left. I suspect it happened around 73-74 and the car was made to look like its contemporary brothers. Maybe this car is a similar story. It is only recently SWB has become collectible. 30 or 35 years ago lwb was perceived as a significant step forward in design and a local improvement someone might make to an accident victim.
