Build date HR Premier

Hi, just wondering if anyone can help with a build date on a HR Premier Iโ€™m buying, Number on fire wall is HR 50556 A. ( Adelaide plant I believe)
Body number is HR 235 3460-A
In addition this vehicle has a 186P motor which is believed to be the oginal by the family but researching tells me is was the regular motor used for HK. Iโ€™m told some may have been put into HRs late in 1967? Anyway, any help would be much appreciated. Aaron

There's a few ways to tell, tell-tale signs hidden in and around the car. Sometimes very well hidden.
Easiest way is in the steering box cover. This is mine, it's an early build, 4 F 6. That's 4th June '66, "F" being 6th letter of the alphabet, also denotes 6th month. If your car hasn't been tampered with, that date should be pretty correct.
