UPDATE 2013-02-16 10:06:52 1966 36 5607 S3 FHC-preairflow Yellow LP5481LB 1976-09-30 3rd (but most loyal) owner. Purchased in Montreal. Although I knew that my car was built in 1966 I have always called it a '67 because that was the way it was registered when I bought it. I thought that it was one of those situations where the model year started before the current year ended. Through the list I see that it should be a '66. The VIN number clearly fits it into 1966. I now suspect that the original Lotus dealer had it in stock and once 1967 came around he called it a '67 rather than having a "year old" new car in stock. mycar Don Erin Ontario Canada
