>>Hugh tells me that the early cars had two bilge plugs. One in the
traditional spot the other directly under the oil pan.
Maybe that is something Marc could add to the table. I was also
thinking of some other differences.
Horn body vent holes. There are 2 distinct types. The horizontal
slots (look hand cut) and then rounded type slots (look machine cut)
most commonly seen.
Wiring differences between early and late. (ign switch and marine
Rear seat bottoms
Emergency (parking) brakes can differ too.
As well as a couple of other items I don't recall. I sent the list
with the VIN numbers when they started to Marc months ago. Did you
get that list Marc? I sent it while I was creating the on-line
Maintenance Manual. Let me know if you want it again, I will look for
it. It may have died when I had the PC crash.

It is very interesting to use databases when searching for additions
during a span of time.
I too had thought about the horn assy styles. How about cars that do
or don't have factory bilge blowers, ours does not.
I think only later US cars had bilge blowers. I have not seen any on cars
which were delivered anywhere else. The same goes for the flame arrestor.
How many people out there have late cars with the black dash treatment also
down the top of the inner door metal.(back window too). Some cars were
painted black inside the trunk and engine bay regardless of the exterior
color. There were also at least to or three different types of original
real bumperettes. How about those funky looking eyebrow mouldings with the
90 degree lip sticking out the sides. (very ugly).
Still having a hard time with the idea of lower panel lips on early cars as
an option and strait quarters on lat er cars. Chrome or painted vent posts
as an option to some degree as well. I certainly take Rene' at his word on
this but for some reason I find myself wanting a little more explanation.
Nothing I've seen in the states would indicate this was the case. Rene' can
you offer a bit more on this subject. Thanks
