It really looks nice and that wood is quite striking. I checked the blue book and it turns out that the "Antique" version was produced in limited runs between the years of 1964 and 1981.
The serial number will tell you the year, but there is no information given if they were produced every year or how many were produced in total. They just indicated that the "antique" model generally brings a premium over the standard model because they were produced in smaller quantities and originally priced higher as a premium configuration.
