That pic on the Fred Gibb site looks kinda dark....but what do I know....
Royal Plum grew on me after having it, especially with the parchment (white) interior. Classy looking. Gets lotsa comments at car shows & cruise ins. I originally wanted Bolero red on red, or Tuxedo black. FWIW....

Gratuitous R.P. pics:  ;)

No, it's not origionally MM. I built what I wanted. I've had this since '83. Took years to decide on a color. Complimented on color often. "Different" they say.  Doing an origional '68 Code 00 now. Not 50K cars but they work for me. And I drive them...often.
I don't post pics often so this may not show the size I want. We'll see.

I can't see it either - the URL is to a forum board post, not to a photo.

You are in the time frame when there were 4P l78s. Being you say it was a race car. You may want to check for sure. Does it have all the correct small block  parts like motor mounts and crossmember & rad.
