    Clamshell sticker change?

    so I'm trying to figure out when the sticker change occurred on the right side of the clam shells. I need to buy a set for my January of 72 car but don't know which ones to buy. I have the February of 72 Car and Driver where they are testing the early 1972 US models and the picture clearly shows the stickers are the logo stickers used from 1968. Those cars are probably very early builds in 1972 model year. When did they change to spelling out wash and wipe?

    My car is 152 units after yours, 9112101182. So if you're sure yours are original than that would answer my question. Thank you very much. That was almost too easy.

    My 8/71 build has the symbols.
    The 7/71 manual shows also symbols, while the 12/71 users manual shows whipe/wash.

    Have to correct myself.

    My 8/71 build MY72 has aftermaket symbols. So no reference for symbols or wipe/wash.

    My '69T USA build has no stickers at all. I have no idea if it ever had them.

    Can somebody please post a picture showing how these are located?

    Thanks,

    Rich
