The hull is definitely pre-1974.  I think that was the first year for the off-white interior.  Previous hulls had you blue interior.  But on the bright side, those hulls came with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!  ::)

Flower Pot Hull # 7648 which is around 1962 ! I first thought it was Hull # 48 which would be 1958 , but it still a find for a BW 13 ....
