Hi, am helping date a friend's barn find. The engine number is like this

CC 18833 A65L

My preliminary research shows this number is severally wrong. It should start A65L - 1XX.

That A65L was only used for 1966 models.

Anyone able to confirm. I am trying to post a pic of the number here



Thanks Peter G[img]https://scontent.fnbo3-1.fna.fbcdn....49a3db126aca62800f606360&oe=5BA9415C[/img]

A65L is the model code of a Lightning used for several years. CC is the date code for March 1969.

Yes, they do..sorry I had lost my book, so forgot that in 69 they changed the numbering system.
