HDAS has 1978 for "California Stop." I don't see it in the Los Angeles Times, now expanded one whole year until the end of 1969 (but with most of that year still missing).

...who slide up to a STOP SIGN AND pull a CALIFORNIA STOP AND just kind of zip.....before y're going to do it I can't STOP n spite of the fact that I was on..
Pg. 7, col. 2:
My theory has been for a very long time that there are very few people who intentionally violate the law. I'll say three in ten. Now you'll see people who slide up to a stop sign and pull a California stop[ and just kind of zip through it. Ok, those people are just being a litle sneaky but by the same token if a guy that comes up there and doesn't even hesitate then you know he's doing it intentionally.
