Yes, the car is accounted for, and is alive and well in the Detroit suburbs.  :)

I think Al Mainerd still owns it.  He was trying to sell it about a year ago.

Back in March/April 1968, my father tried to order a Z/28 convertible.  He had a few contacts at GM (having owned several Corvairs and having to deal with the associated issues), but they just wouldn't do it for him (obviously).  I showed him this car and he said "Hey, that's my car!".
