This is the first hybrid M-chassis made. Vin No. is 2258. This car was originally delivered to Germany to a Ken and Jodi Moline. Ken was an Army officer. The car was brought to the United States in November of 1975. It was sold to a Richard Barlow in early 1977. Then the car was sold to Chet Kenoyer in mid-1977. Gerald and Shelia Gooch purchased the care in late 1977 and kept the car until October of 1988 when Richard Gunn purchased it. I have records dating back to early 1980 in my possession. When I purchased the car in October of 2003 an extensive restoration process was started. All the wheels are Shelby American original aluminum 8 spoke wheels. The engine was removed and rebuilt.
