I understand what both of you are getting at. I agree in this instance you have to kinda work with what was the standard practice. Thank you Steve for pointing out the cars you have seen them on, and the time frames. Also the pics are great of those cars, you are a wealth of info with the pics to back it up.
I get the Vette joke. I have never attended the Corvette Church of manors, nor read through "the bible" of NCRS restoration guide lines, but I have met Corvette guys (and been looked down upon from them  ..lol), and they can be group that is fun to observe from afar. Gary your story of 20 of you guys looking over the technicians shoulder is a great visual of this. (no offense)  ;D

OK, back to Steves great car!
I assume since the radio, was mentioned as a dealer install, they would have had to drill the fender, wire up the speaker, and install the deck. I also assume the original owner brought the vehicle back for the motor bracket and cable, for the recall. Just curious since I have a large stack of my own invoices, if the original owner made continual visits to the dealership on a regular basis to see the car stayed in tip top shape or if it sat parked for a long duration of time? It seems that most of these original cars fall into one of these categories.

I think Austin asked the mileage question. This is what I can confirm:
The last inspection was 1991 and insp sticker notes 32,015 miles
12/27/08 The car was looked at for purchase and the odometer read 32,295
The car today has 33,086 most of which was put on by Sal N,. the second owner.

Here are a few more detail pics. The picture with the three gentlemen is the pre-purchase inspection on 12/27/08. The orig owner is center and his son is on the right. The person to the left is a friend of Sal's (the purchaser) friend who inspected the car.

Cook, your night job must be as a court stenographer..... :o  ...........for the tv show "divorce court". (Stick with wrenching buddy ;D )

Good info Steve. How long had you been aware of the car?

Steve, your last picture of the three - a few posts above - the left front corner of the gas tank appears to have a "dimple". Is this a tank drain? My car is also a 2D and my tank, to the best of my knowledge, is original (I bought my car with 57k in '77, no reason to suspect it's replacement). It has this drain, which I am very curious about.

That is just a dent. I haven't verified the tank date. I suggest that you verify the tank date. The drain may have been added at some point, but not from the factory.

 I take it that exhaust is a replacement and possibly a Gardner?

Yes it's a Gardner exhaust. The exhaust that was on the car was a worn out replacement walker system.
