Default Wanted: '78 W72 400 Formula

I'm looking for a 1978 W72 400 Formula WITHOUT AC or T-tops. Automatic (TH350) trans is preferred, but 4-speed is fine too. Want numbers matching everything ideally and in solid original, or an older restored car. I'd love to find a stripper with just the W72 400, TH350/M21, 3.23/3.42 posi, PS/PB, factory tach/gauges and nothing else...a guy can wish, can't I?

Thanks, Dennis

Anyone know of any W72 Formulas? PMD made 884 automatics and 810 sticks, 1694 total, so there has to be some out there somewhere...thanks!

I'm still looking for a W72 Formula 4-speed or TH350 auto without T-tops or A/C...if any exist.

Seen a few W72 '78 Formulas for sale, but all have A/C. This will be a tall order.

I figured that it's such a long shot that if such a Formula ever comes along, I'd buy it. So, I'm probably safe from ever making such a purchase...lol.

That's a great stripper too! If it was a '78, I'd be all over it.
