 btw,  that is actually an American model airbrushed with Canadian emblems.  look how the rear wheel is centered in the wheelhouse, Canadian cars have the wheel scrunched forward, also the front fender has the American location of the wheelhouse, Canadian cars have the wheelhouse closer to the door.

 

As I mentioned the Canadian ride height is detailed in the shop manual.  Because they offered both 14 and 15 inch wheels  you measure stance not to the ground but instead by suspension lift.  In the back you measure axle to frame rail clearance and in front you measure relative height of lower control arm bushing and balljoint to determine if springs are doing their job.

In my scanned version of the parts book I don't have the illustrations section, and that's where the springs are listed (Section 7)
If you need ''Group 7.000 Illustration 16'' to ''Illustration 24'' (for 1969) I can send them to you....

Sure, if you have the illustrations section please send it to me! I actually need all of them, I have only the white text pages scanned. I did it like 15 years ago on a flatbed, took FOREVER so I only did the parts I figured I'd search!

I'm not 100% certain John's right about this being a US car, but I've always felt the bottom "crease" body line was sharper on the US cars, and when I saw this photo I thought immediately "This looks like a US stamping", but then I thought "Maybe it's just an early stamping and that makes it crisp". Or maybe it's all just coincidence and they're identical anyway!

The other sign its a US model is the area at the base of the windshield; Canadian cars had parallel wipers and US cars had opposing wipers. So on Canadian cars the top of the fender flares up high while they are flatter and the rear hood molding doesnt extend to the fenders.
