Greg Mross was contacted by Ken Seggy in October 2004 looking for info on his car based on Greg's regular web posts regarding 4 speed '72s. It turned out it was not a W30 as Ken suspected, but was in fact a V Code and luckily, it had GM of Canada documentation.   Ken sold the car at auction the next day. Here's the info provided to me by Ken (gnttype @ interlog.com):

"It was orange with a white vinyl top, white stripes and black buckets. p/b, p/s, 4 speed,rally gauges with tic toc tach, am radio, and I think it had posi. It was stored in British Columbia for 17 years and drove nice. The body was solid along with the floors and frame. The roof had some bubbling rust coming up on the A pillars and some on the main roof. It looked great from 15 feet. The body had some original paint and some panels were painted." Ken said that it spent most of its life in BC where it was stored, then was shipped to Ontario where he bought it from a dealer. Ken said that it also has an OAI hood and air cleaner setup.
