Default More photos

Few more photos from FB. If early L78 were coded 4P on the trim tags, when was the change over to 4K? Just trying to educate myself.
Thanks,
Marty

Marty, we recently been discussing a 4P L78 car I know about but donít have knowledge of its TT to get the build date. Its last six vin numbers are 208??? And yours is 198??? Built 03D.
Your info helps us time line build dates for other 4P cars. Iím thinking the car Iím referring to is a 04B car. Most people think that the last 4P L78ís were in April.
Nice car, love the color. Are you going to get her back in the road?
Later

I love the color, and the Cragars. This is one of those cars that I would not restore to factory condition.

Was the car repainted? Only ask because of the lack of black painted tail panel.
