I'm unfamiliar with Coronas, is there something special about it being an RT43 rather than RT40?

I glanced at the VIN the other night while getting the front brakes un-stuck and it did start with RT40 not RT43. I will try to get some more pics and the full VIN tonight or tomorrow.

RT43 is USA version of RT40 they had larger capacity engines and rubber bumper overiders

vinyl wood grain dashes ive only seen in 69s models and a very small number of 68s

KM/H dashes are also rare i thought they where JAP & UK i have a non woodgrain finnish km/h dash i was going to use for coolness factor but scored a GT dash now

the tail-lights are later model 67-68 not 69 not 66

i would say its a 68 model with the possibility of it being a late 67 upspecced model (is a deluxe?) i cant tell from the pics alone
