Interesting thing is the orig. owner lived in Milford Michigan. That is where the GM proving grounds is.

'

Is anything known of Anthony B's war service record, note the Jan '68 ad below from Lansing MI which is 50 odd miles from Milford?
If seeking more history, Ancestry.com lists an Anthony B. who passed away in Oakland MI in '78 also there's a phone # online for a 78 year Joan in Milford.
I have a bunch more 67/68/69 L78 Convert' ads saved...better posted here or over in the Old Newspaper Ads thread?

An M-21 (close ratio) and 2.73s? So a dog off the line but a runner at the top end?

Anybody know if this car is an original L78 or just a nice clone? It was at Mecum Indy in 2009. Unfortunately I didn't write down the VIN or take a picture of the trim tag.

Van Camp Chevrolet sold a lot of muscle in this area. That gold 4K convertible must have been out of the area for years - I would have remembered seeing it around.
