Why is it never easy? We need Steve Byers in here to officiate. From
Graham Robson's "The Big Healeys", 43025 was the last production car coming
off the production line on 12/21/67. Two more cars, 43000 and 43007 were
finished in January 1968. The last car, 43026 was built from scratch and
finished March 14, 1968. 43026 is detailed here and is white:
http://www.ahexp.com/registry/HBJ843026 Robson's book also contains a
picture of a BJ8 going down the line with a sign saying "The End" on it,
which I'm guessing is 43025. It appears to be a rather dark color (maybe
BRG) so perhaps the GBM is a repaint (and why would you change the color of
the last production car?)
