I’m not really sure where you got your information from, but 17JAN1967 was the day that the 737 was “introduced” inside of the Thompson site at Boeing Field where it was christened by flight attendants representing the 17 airlines that had already placed orders for the 737. It was not rolled out and did not take its first flight until 09APR1967.

Regardless, still an amazing aircraft and certainly one of my favorite passenger airliner aircraft.
