I do not know why it would matter to anyone, even from a historical perspective.  To give you a guess, I will say 1974, just before the advent of unleaded gasoline.

1974 is the CORRECT year Gary!:)

I helped get it running for the current owner . They put a milder cam in it, when it was rebuilt in Chicago.
