Well, yes they are. the '62 has a '68-69 door on it.  Unless they went to
the trouble of changing out the hinges from the doors...  I doubt it though.

This I didn't know.

and from Bruce:

>64 has the option of duals, push button lights etc. they change in 65.

They changed MID '64  I have a late '64 without pushbuttons  and an early
'64 with pushbuttons.  The OPTION of duals went from 64 throughout end of
production in some countries, I've heard, but they were not available
untill  '64.

>4 lug came in 66 with front disks.  65 in 5 lug.

You are correct.  I made a  typo.

I am putting together a complete Type Three Parts Book - Online - that will
document parts numbers. The site will be available, though not in
completion (it's a BIG book), probably later this month.  Sections will be
added as finished.
