Just a quick note to Richstang we never figured a definite date for cutoff of lights...been looking over the registry and I think it is more like the first week of Jan. Best example I could find is car 213--low mile original paint car
and it has no scoop lights. Remember the date is more critical than the car number...I really think that far less than 200 were made. Which Red car is on the list ?? 0100 ?? Thanks.
Thanks for the note on #213.
I have it listed in my spreadsheet without these USL's and a SA completion date 1/4/67.
#145 - GT350 - SA completion date of 1/6/67 has them too. After that date, I've only found the three cars with them as listed below.
You may be right on the first week of January as the cut off, but a few cars are in question having these Upper Scoop Lights and built in the second week of January.
#155 - GT350 - SA completion date 1/10/67 has them
#314 - GT500 - SA completion date 1/14/67 has them. The current owned mentioned on the forum he's looking for the original owner to find out if they were added.
#339 - GT500 - SA completion date 1/11/67 has them.
It is possible they were added in all three cases, but they should be considered until proven otherwise.
Other than the three exceptions above, after car #176 no other cars have appear with the USL's in my search.
Between #176 and #250 there are 21 cars that do not have them.
Between #001 and #176 there are 16 cars that also do not have them. Looking at those SA build dates, we have to consider if they were removed on a few of them.
Yes, the only red car with the USL's is #100, Eric's GT500.
Other than the two questionable GT500s above, this is the only other GT500 with them.
I also agree if we ever get a complete list, we will find the number of cars with the USL's is closer to 165, perhaps even less.
Edit correction from #144 to #145
