have a look under the dash at the window wiper arms. They have a month and year stamped on them. It's unlikely they have been changed and should align quite closely with when the car was built.

hmmm yes those wiper arms are a fair bit earlier than what you would expect for a latish 66 or 67 model...the steering box cover date you provide corresponds to Aug 66..perhaps made in late 66 and first registered in early 67...assuming the Sydney plant was producing steady monthly numbers and a total of about 80,000 from that plant suggests about 3600 per month so the body number supports the 6 or 7th month after start of production (Apr66) so that aligns with Oct/Nov 66 which also aligns with the steering box...just an estimate
