History Ordered and purchased new in November 1964 from Max Barish Plymouth in Los Angeles, CA by Nathaniel Anschuler for $3,875.00. Complete numbers and production documentation. Heavily optioned. The car was sold and moved East to Jamaica Plains, MA and stored for about 20 years. It was then sold from the owner's estate to a Pontiac collector in Delhi NY. I purchased the car from him, unrestored in 2006. I restored it from 2007 to 2013 retaining most factory options and features.
