    Front Slam Panel - Water Bottle Hole

    Hi, has Anybody got a definitive VIN or cut off date of when the water bottle hole was introduced I assume mid 1967?

    Thanks

    I believe that the water bottle hole was introduced with the 1968 model year. I have/had several late(ish) 67 cars and none had the water bottle hole. Perhaps a better question is what serial number are you trying to verify as not having or having a water bottle hole and we can provide examples of original cars with no hole....

    My memory serves me that Restoration Design did recently start making the correct slam panel for 1966-67.

    I am sooooo annoyed with myself !!!

    I thought I had researched the slam panel well but obviously not !!!

    I have installed the incorrect version sourced a excellent water Bottle, pump, brackets Lines etc I can’t see how I made such a big mistake!!

    Do you know if the washer bags and accessories are available? Does it have a pump etc I have no idea
