Yes the PHS documents should tell you.  You should have gotten a sales sheet that says when the car was built and where it was initially shipped to for sale.

or look on the cowl tag.  It'll at least tell you the month and what week of the month.

The production date is on the build sheet in box number 10 which is located in the upper left hand corner under SCHED NO. DATE.  It will be the lower 4 digit number, example 03-07 (March 7th)

If you check out this page, it shows an example of the build sheet.  It is the top left hand bax that has your build date of the car.  Since I had your car before, your cowl plate says 04A which means it was built the first week of April.  I also have a copy of your build sheet, and in the top left hand corner of your build sheet, it say 04-07.  So, your car was built on April 7th of 1978.
