Top one appears to be 1966
C = ?
71537 = Canso 2 dr hdtp 6 cyl
2-5-16 = second shift May 16th
807044 = consecutive body number
Paint C = Provincial white
Trim 016 = blue
D99 = paint dividers ( even though it is single colour )
M35 = powerglide

Bottom one: might this be 1967?
71369 = Invader 4 door sedan 6 cylinder
2-12-20 = second shift Dec 20th
823659 = sequential production number
paint 9 or SS ( I don't have a listing for but by the paint on the tag which is very common it would be a res )
Trim 201 = if 1967 then fawn

 Spot on.. Keep the Canso as a Canso..so many want to clone to an SD. But less Canso made....and yes D99 trim. But 66/67 never had 2 tone paint in Canada.

I learned something new, no two tone 66-67 Canso? Interesting, I think you could get it on a Canadian Nova, I wonder why not a Canso.

 Ever seen a 2 tone Canso??? Think they were just using up Canadian and U.S. parts!! Back then....we didn't throw anything away! But yes,, Canadian produced Nova was available in 2 tone..go figure???

4 door is a driving project, 2 door is a basket case. Im torn on buying a full floor pan (cowl to tail panel) and doing a restoration because theyre so hard to find. I have a 66 Nova thats restored and want a 66 Acadian too. What to do?
