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.
That was in 1981.................they were 6 cyl, 3 sd, air cond.
