The insert code will give up its identity. Is it definitely 1242 though?

The chassis number is way off too. Will he HR followed by 5 digits then two letters, probably MM

My apologies, I have just cleaned them a little with steel wool to remove some flakey paint, I can confirm that
Trim is 1146-F42
Pain is 587-1286
Insert is definitely 1242
And the firewall is HR56045M
Thanks, Brad

1146 is Hacienda Blue metallic paint all over (no white roof). The paint line confirms this.
I’ll check the 1242 later, that is the mechanical package code.

Dr Terry will fix you up with the trim (F42).

It is a Dandenong body and assembled there too (the PSN M129531 tells you this).

There may be another M on the other side of the rib in the firewall.

The HR235AR tells you HR, 235 is Premier sedan, A is auto and R is right hand drive. The number after it is just a sequence number for bodies out of the Dandenong body plant.

I just checked, 1242 has been found previously on HR Premier sedan optioned with 186S and automatic transmission with disc brakes.

That’s great information, thanks for looking into it for me.
I can confirm the car is an auto with disc front end.

Thanks

Hi Guys.

F42 is Honey Fawn coloured interior trim for an HR Premier sedan with front bucket seats.

AFAiK this interior trim & the Hacienda Blue Met paint finish were late additions to HR around July '67.
