Confusion on year made

I have a 1 owner October 1974 5 litre kingswood. I brought it and registered it November 74, but yet the day of manufacturing has the date stamp E for manufacture in 1975, when it should have D for 1974. I have all original paperwork and warranty books and have been driving it since late 74. Am I missing something?...
Regards

Putting the H back in the Q.

Search me trials and tribulations getting me ride on the road, I posted 19th January 2017, and a progress report 4th October, and here another chapter continues.

While in the shed the painter called , if Ya wait for the next fine day. Shes hard enough to take home, That day arrived - I dropped the boys a box a Waikato. Obviously the $ too. We loaded her up and took her home, the list is a good way to keep ya busy, cause when that bolt pisses ya off just take a walk or do another job on the list, as it's not done until it is crossed off, but myes 5 pages at this point.

173 engine ID

I was given a red 173 motor today. I think it might be from an LJ Torana.
Engine number: CD 428759
Head part no: 7438296
Date code; middle of head on manifold side: J2 0
Number at back of head on manifold side: 6 H
Can anyone confirm what it is?
Supposed to be a YT head but has single valve springs and ports look stock.
If it's just a stock head I'll probably just pass the whole motor on if anyone needsa 173 for an LJ resto.
It has the sump on it.

Putting the H back in the Q.

Back in January 19th I started me trilogy of trials and tribulations getting me ride on the road

I spent a solid week rubbing & scrubbing, some days went into the dawn of the next day, I couldn't leave it alone, but Progress was being made, rust protection, etch primer & top coat - followed by underbody sealer surely must help, just all takes time to prepare and complete. Then one morning I come up the house, I had no obvious jobs left to do (whoohu), she was now ready for the professionals.

Paint and Trim codes

Morning.

I've recently bought a 1974 HQ ute as a project, and I've a few questions.

From what I can gather from searching the net is that it is a '74 Belmont made in Sydney and came with engine L20 (202). There are no codes on the plate for trans or axle.

The paint code (568-15894) which I think is black. I'm unable to find a reference for the trim code (1885-35A). Though the glove box lid and A pillar trims are painted a bluey-grey.

Can somebody help me identify the colour and trim?

I've attached a photo of the plate.

Thanks.
