68 - registration dates it at 69) >>


Do not know if there is a "right" answer in most cases.  In the late 50's and 
early 60's it was about four months from time of manufacture to time of 
delivery in the western USA.  In the case of our 1966 Sprite it is registered 
as a 1967. But it is a 1098 and  1966 was the last year for 1098's.  So we 
call it a 1966.  On the other hand our Bugeye was built in Nov. 1959 and 
delivered/sold in Feb. 1960 so we call it a 1960.
