The urban legend goes that in 1971 some Arab oil magnate ordered 10,000 white two door base model Chevelles (even a radio delete). They were to have six cylinder engines and three speed manual transmissions. They were to be delivered all at once as a surprise gift giveaway to his employees and the families of his friends. For some reason (several different stories here) they were not delivered and they were sold in North America at greatly discounted prices. I know that several were sold locally. I have a friend that owns one but he couldn't stand the six so he dropped in a 350/350 combination.
