HR BUILD DATE

HI
I am trying to figure out when my HR was built the Vin No is HR16936 S S i am assuming from what i have read on this site that it is the 16936th HR built in Sydney,I was told when i bought the car that it is a 1967 model but is there any other way to tell .The spedo & steering column has been changed so i cannot check that & i really dont want to pull anything else off it was hoping someone would have one with similar Vin No range .
thanks

When you consider they made 12000 a month from 4 plants, if they made them evenly between all plants then yours would be a 9/66 model (3000 per month for 5.5 months, release in April, makes mid September)

Might be wrong but I would have thought Sydney would make make at keast 1/4 of all HRs.

Anyone else want to do the math. (4/66 to 12/67 = 20 months, 252352 made, divide by 20 = 12,618)

Might even be earlier as they normally start production early and end early for next model and more are sold at the start than at the end.

not an exact way to tell
but if it has standard seat belts in front and not the bolt through the pillar
it could be a 67 model
but not concrete as some from other plants in 66 had the safety pack as far as i know
