Info gathered with permission from:

In early 1976 875147 was located in New Mexico. Its prior history, included at least two owners, and work performed by the last of these reportedly included removing the engine and transmission, overboring by 0.040 inches, and installing Hepolite pistons. The car had reportedly been altered to negative ground and had a Chevrolet generator installed. It had non-original seats, was fitted with a Parrish hardtop, and had wood trim on the dash. It had gone about 22.000 miles since its restoration. By 1977, it had changed hands.
