Hi Mel,
Here's attached photo showing headlight lamps of different years. Pick up which one that it match to your headlight lamp for us. I am quite surprised your lamps are really so crystal clear!

The 2nd pic is as about you can expect Mel.

From the looks of the lack of "Guide" above the T-3 logo, those are the 60-67 in Steven's chart.

Thanks for the chart Steven, I wasn't aware of these changes. Ya learn something new everyday, eh...

Interesting. Do not ever remember seeing a T-3 bulb without "Guide" somewhere on it. Export version? If yours is the 5th then there are at least 6, do not forget the 72 version (OT for Corvair):

These drums are often on eBay very reasonably but not usually in pairs. I have complete sets (60 and 61-63) for sale if anyone is interested.

HEY MEL,
Quick Hijak...

What's the deal with the roofline trim on the 700's? I got some with my 500 and wondered how it goes on there? Pops over the painted stuff??
Just wondering....

You'r car is looking nice. That Ford blue almost looks stock with the trim on! :0)
