Tricky question, Mike. I had to do a lot of digging, but the answer I found was March 19, 1965. CollectorCarTraderOnline has a bunch more info on that car, which is currently for sale for a cool quarter-million dollars.

PLease give me the source reference-I could not find it in traderonline. I am aware of 1 Mar build date as the earliest (It is now in Fresno, Calif)Thanks Mike
