Purchased October 1978 from Mecham Pontiac Dealership in Glendale Arizona by Ken Martindale of Salt Lake City, tah
I am the 3rd owner since then and have known all owners. The color was changed from Red/Black to Black/Gold when red paint started to fade in about 2005.
Interior is original with original Recaro Seats
Headliner is sagging and original Fosgate stereo system is missing.
I have the original Engine from Mecham with original turbo setup. She has a built 400 engine with 1967 670 Heads and Ram Air 4 cam. I also have a near-new Complete H.O.
