Seeing a Leedy-Slingerland with Aluminum Set-O-Matic mounts and Chocolate Milk Interiors. Wouldn't this date to '68?
Also seeing info on Leedy-Slingerland's ending mfg in 1965. Is this date actually 1969?

Slinger-Leedy kits were certainly available through the late 60's. Examples with 'chocolate milk' interiors and set-o-matic tom mounts confirm this. Whether or not Leedy 'manufacturing' ceased in '65 is up to debate. It is possible the '65 date is wrong or that kits after '65 may have been 'assembled' using new Slingerland and existing 'old stock' Leedy components.
