OK.  :)   that image worked, so I'll try another with my door mounted mfg sticker... with the VIN.  My car has original paint from the cowl back (only front clip has been repainted, probably from a minor accident in it's early years;   I was amazed even in 1976 when I bought the car that the mfg sticker was still on the door!  since it's been sitting in my basement garage since 1980, the sticker is still there!   :)

Yes, it is.  It's a 720 trim, 72 B code car, 09C build with 08/27 assembled engine.  all the mechanicals are original.  I'm trying to find the alternator that I removed in 1982 or so.. it's in my garage somewhere along with the original coil - I put on a Judson electronic mag in 1976!!  :)  

I thought the interior was ugly when I first saw it in 1976, but traded for it because it was different and unusual (traded a very strong running and original '68 blue Z28 for it).  I guess the color combo *grows on you* because now I like it, and everyone that has seen it wants to buy it...  *S*   

Here's a photo of my original interior (wear on the driver's seat, but otherwise good).   I plan to do some repair on the driver's seat, and maintain itin as 'factory original' condition as I can.
