Project 196? Gibson Melody Maker

I just picked up a nice Project 196? Gibson Melody Maker. The only major problem with this is a headstock crack that has been repaired. I did have a couple questions about this guitar.

1. What year would this guitar be?
The serial number (last 2 digits) are very hard to read and when I type it in on a serial number searcher It says 1965, but when I look at pictures of 1965's they look a lot more like an SG than this one.

2. It seems like there as originally a Vibrola Tremelo bar on this, but I am not sure!

Any other information on this neat guitar would be welcome! Thanks!!

IDK the headstock looks off to me not like a Gibby MM headstock. Unless its been altered the outside corners look too round.

That is what I thought too, but there is a genuine serial number on the back of the headstock.
