    Thanks B5! I can never think of the Motor town name when I'm trying to. Didn't want to mention Wangers without being able to point in the right direction.

    I think the dealer conversions make an interesting and valuable niche market in our niche! A couple others I've found were a 76 Superpak R/T with a dealer added landau top. Retained it's louvers. And also a 79 /6 Road Runner with Rocket mag wheels and an ASC sunroof dealer installed and listed on the original sales invoice. I'd consider cars like these and yours as delivered condition to customer the true way to restore them.

If you look at the Cobra II you'll see the similarity between them. There are a few others cars they did, will have do check my notes.
    Unfortunately, it appears Jim Wagners retired from public life this past February due to dementia. I was hoping to interview him.
