Congratulations on a fantastic find. Another member here owns a Chateau Slate 66 L78. Not a very common color for sure.

No, this car is well documented and with original drive train and owner history and he has owned it for several years. However, the &quot;Doc&quot; you are referring to could in fact be the same guy as he is a Doctor and buys a lot of L78 cars.

I believe Doc O owns two Chateau Slate '66 L78s.

Great find!! CS is one of my favorite '66 colors.
