    According to my build sheets and fender tag, my dart rolled off the assy line today in 1967.

    Other paperwork show 2/18/67 as the delivery date, to my dad in Santa Monica, CA

    319,000 miles about 300,000 of those were daily driver miles.

    Miss my dad :(

      Scheduled Production Dates on the broadcast sheet and fender tag were assigned at time of order, not on the day the car was actually made.

      So..... your celebration could be days or weeks early, or days or weeks late.

      I miss my dad too.

          According to bill of sale it had an estimated delivery date of Feb 6th.

          It's like the rescue dog, you will never know the exact date it was born but you can get pretty close.

          So 2-8-67 is the date I'm using it was a Wednesday.

          10 days to get on a train, move from Hamtramck Michigan to Los Angles, then trucked to Santa Monica. Doesn't seem too unreasonable.


          The 18th was a Saturday and both my sister and I were there when dad picked it up.
