    I am ready to paint this car in the original color GOLDEN SAND even if it's not my favourite color. The first registration of this car is dec 63, but I think 889493 is a 64 model. Do you agree ?

    Pierre, it would appear it was built in November of '63, perhaps delivered in December. As to the model year it would likely depend on regulations of the country of original registration. In the US it would most certainly have been registered as a '64 but in the UK its my understanding that date of mfg. makes no difference its strictly based on when it was first registered.
