VIN 242378P276703. Ordered and sold by Paddock Pontiac in Dayton, Ohio. Paddock was in business from 1967 until 1972. Jack Paddock was the owner. Charles Russell Berry of Tipp City, OH was the service manager for Paddock for all 5 years. Found an original dealership license plate frame from Paddock Pontiac where the car was sold new. The car has the original engine, transmission and rear end. I purchased the car from Jerry Slone of Pippa Passes, KY. I know the car was registered in Columbus and Cleveland OH, and Austin TX. The car had a parchment interior (original color) when I bought it. I changed the interior to black in 2011. Engine was rebuilt in 2013.
