A quick search of ECWA and Kettner at Newspapers.com turns up an article in the News Journal (Wilmington, DE) about an upcoming 5th Anniversary show on 26 April 1985.  So that would put them back to 1980-81.  I found some other mentions in Virginia, North Carolina and New York dating back to 1977 referencing shows by an "East Coast Wrestling Association".  

But given how sporadic the references are, while the name may have existed as far back as 1967, I don't think it has been one continuously operating company all that time.  It is probably similar to how Dale Gagner restarted the AWA.
