That's interesting, because the only other late notch I think I've ever seen 
was a light blue one also in El Cahon. That was in '73 or '74. At that time I 
wasn't quite sure what it was, other than a type 3 that I'd never seen before.

The blankets over the heat exchangers where standard, and I think the rear 
window defroster was, too, certainly in Canada. The gas heater was probably 
standard in Canada, but the case heater was installed by the dealer or later.
