It just looks like a standard early Euro SLC with the ugly US lights added on.
Nothing odd about the higher redline - the 350s were always screamers and always had the higher rev capability.
Manual gearbox was an option way back at the start and AC wasn't a delete option - it was a pay extra option.
It's kind of an odd mix actually. Was burl wood an option back in '72? And it is odd that even though the console and heater is burl, the strip along the glove box etc. is black.
The leather looks to be the later perforated leather too. As far as I am aware, the earliest SLCs with leather had non perforated leather as the option with fabric or velour as the standard.

I dare say $15k is asking a bit much.

I'm not sure what you were told by the past owner, but you might want to check their trustworthiness in the future...
