I have owned the car since 1982 and have it pretty much torn apart to start the body work. Left side sill and floor to be replaced.

I have received a Heritage Certificate for this car that shows a production date of February 9, 1967. The chassis number would denote a Series 1.5 car if they started at 1E34250 meaning the car was built late in 1967. The car has open headlamps, the only feature distinguishing it from a Series 1. How could 1E34263 have been built in February of 1967? I have spoken to the original owner and hope to clear up the matter.

The Series 1.5 coupes start with 1E34583 in late July/early August and are 1968 MY cars built to meet new US safety & emission standards that became effective January 1, 1968. Your car is what has become known as a Series 1.25 which indicates an open headlight 1967, the first of which is 1E34113 built in mid January. As with your car, the 1.25's are identical to the Series 1 cars with the exception of the open headlights. The Series 1 and Series 1.5 judging guides available in the Technical & Originality Library section of the JCNA web site provide a wealth of information on when production changes took place by car number.

Thanks so much for the info...I did check out the JCNA judging guide and it cleared it up for me. What about cylinder head color? Mine has always been silver but understand that this might mean a deduction...

Bare aluminum appears to be correct for your engine. If you refer back to the Series 1 judging guide you will note that while the exact transition to the unpainted aluminum cylinder head is not known the earliest confirmed example is 7E11938-9 which is 400+ units before your engine 7E12350-9.

Best guess is they stopped painting them gold in late '66.

Work begins in earnest again on the car. The IRS has been dropped from the car and the tub is about ready to go on a rotisserie. I have been waiting in line for Chuck Hadley of Monocoque Metalworks to take the car. Looks like it will happen this year.
