History:  (details from Tom Cochran of Westwood, MA - third owner from ~ 1994-2000) The first owner was a doctor who lived in Wisconsin at the time of purchase. He special ordered it with emblem and stripe delete and no power options. He moved to Massachusetts and later sold the car (@1990) to a guy who took it to Texas for a couple of years when he was in the Airforce. Tom bought it from him when he came back to Mass.and was getting transferred.  He did a restoration that included new fenders, one new quarter, rechromed original rear bumper, new conv top and interior (carpet and seat covers), and added the ram air hood. Floors, frame and trunk are original and in good shape. The drivetrain was untouched (a little tired) and 100% original. He also upgraded the wheels to SS1's, as it had dog dish hubcaps on it when he got it. Tom also added power steering because the car was so hard to drive when he got it.
