And has the right heads

Claiming to be a WW5 car , but those came with In-Dash Tachs , not Hood Tachs with a clock.
No PHS Invoice posted but says it has a PHS window sticker (not shown)

Paint code is 65-65 , but it has a Vinyl Top
Sundance Orange is supposed to be a solid color.

Things can change a lot over 50 years, could still be legit if it has legit documentation.
So far it seems a bit sketchy by its description and presentation.

VIN P129379 is a WW5 GTO, probably listed in the thread on them.
PS - did not have hood tach on PHS

Maybe TheBoss bought it back.

That 72 Formula 455 HO 4spd car got removed early too .
Someone might be on an HO buying spree out there.

Hood Tach was supposedly a dealer only option in 72. Not available from the factory so it wouldn't be on the PHS.
PO may have ordered the clock and hood tach from the dealer.

TheBoss might chime in on the car , but he rarely posts here anymore.
In-Dash Tach & Gauges were standard equipment with WW5 option.
And numerous other things have been altered on this car that I didn't go into.
The dash picture didn't show if it had gauges or not
I'm not sure how complete or incomplete the car was when Boss sold it.
I don't think the current seller is the same guy he sold it to.

Off the wall factoids :
I did a breakdown once and you could actually order all the WW5 options separately and come out about $10 or $15 cheaper than ordering WW5 .
We have one car in our list from another PY member that the original owner actually did that.
The Invoice was jam packed. Even had Cruise and AC etc ...

Lloyd's former 72 HO , the original owner ordered all the WW5 options separately Except Tach & Gauges , and installed a Hood Tach.

69 Custom S convertible 350 with a Holly GTO clone in Florida at $35K BIN. No pics with the top up? Nice looking car with the GTO front end and hideaways. I'd lose the rear wing and waterbed steering wheel, put on stock 15" Rally II's and paint the tach. The interior is nice with the dual gate shifter. This car seems like a good deal.
