Description

Lot #459 - Early production ( 1st week of Oct, 1965) A. O. Smith built L-72 convertible. The early production L-72's (approximately 1st 3 months) were rated 450 HP at 6400 RPM. Shortly after that they were changed to 425 HP at 5600 RPM. No one knows the real reason, some say government regulation, some say insurance regulation, some say GM did it on their own as per attached L-72 article. Whatever the reason this car has gone through a complete body off, nut & bolt restoration. The entire drivetrain & all mechanical were completely rebuilt. Runs & drives like new.
