When that car has no smog stuff, that could be a stronger euro-version with highcompression ratio 9:1 instead of the reduced US-ratio 8:1.

You could figure out on the dataplate under the bonnet in front of the radiator. When that is an US-version the code "7" on the line at the end after the modell-code will tell you. An other hint can be the place of the Vinplate. On the radiatorbridge for a non-US car and in the driversdoor for an US-car.

Well that is a non-US-delivered 6door Pullman. That car should have eighter a euro-version compression motor OR a lowcompression motor.

This car is not in our registery yet and new. Thanks for the Vin. Now I would like some pictures.

There are produced 104 LHD and 20 RHD 6door Pullman


For your Info:
001788 was a sixdoor Pullman from Huge Heffner (Playboy Limousine Inc);
001790 was a fourdoor Landaulet .....

It was more of a hypothetical comparison. Kinda like comparing the new Mrs Kanye and that Cyrus chick. Both are basket cases, but in different ways.

I'm thinking we should replace the engine with a proper 454, supercharged of course. If it's a basket case, we should go full monte
