There were ongoing changes with all models making them almost individual by year.he AC model was introduced in 1967 and came with a 1438 cc twin cam engine, 5 speed box and torque tube driveline. It also had a rear anti-roll bar, 120 mph speedo and a set of 3 gauges. The interior was equipped with a faux woodrim steering wheel with stainless spokes, plus a wood-grain dash and console top.
