Paul,

The ones that popped up on Fleabay are earlies.

The mounting looks the same as what I have now. How can one tell if they are earlies? Also the date code. 67?

Those have 'flat' tabs on the bottom for mounting with 2 bolts. The lates have a tube and mount with one bolt.

Just an idea...
Back when I was in school in Up-state NY. and didn't have much money...
I found a free pair of early shocks. I cut the flat tabs off the bottom mounts and pressed them out. I then pressed out the bottom tube from my old late model shocks and pressed them into the bottom of the earlies. I had to find a washer to back up the rubber so that the pressing would not dislodge it from the shock eye. It actually worked and I had shocks for my 1966 that lasted until it rusted away!

As hard as the spiral shocks are to find... perhaps this would be worth a try.
