Thanks Jon! Your huge collection of stuff comes through again!
Not sure why they would have made a second Cherokee but maybe the first one (red interior/white stripe/non-tach hood) was destroyed in a shipping accident or maybe they wanted to display it simultaneously at two different venues? At first I thought they might have just changed the interior color, removed the stripes and added the tach on the hood for its appearance in the fall Can Am races but the build date of the surviving Cherokee (June) comes after the date of the photos I posted (April) so there must have been a second one constructed. This also begs the question, were there 2 Californians built as well?
I also liked the look of the Americans with Firestones on the Z28 show car. Do you know what color the 15th Z28 was? It's obviously a lighter color.
