My notes show that my father purchased 1072 during October 1982. It no longer had its original iron block engine but another had been fitted. My efforts to learn more led me to contact Ron Plescia, the man who did the initial body sketches. Later, when Ron saw the car or perhaps some photos, he called it "the droopy pants car" because the rear portion of the body was different than the others in that it dropped from the rear axle to the tail in a way that is more pronounced than others. Said to have been green originally, the car had orange paint when purchased 1982. It came to my father from an insurance company (San Francisco Bay Area) and we never learned the previous owner's name or location.
1072 had experienced a minor engine fire that damaged some wiring and cooked an area of paint on the bonnet/hood. Parts sold off by the insurance company included the windshield, the right rear bumper and the Borrani wheels and splined adapters. The Intermeccanica badges and the hood latch were also missing, presumed either sold or stolen. Once we got car cleaned up and the engine running (new carburetor fitted?), it was a pleasant car to drive.
I scanned these images about five years ago in a block of four and only cropped them this morning back into individual images. The photos were taken in Walnut Creek (CA) during the Spring of 1984 after I'd repainted the hood and modified Jaguar XKE rear bumpers to fit the rear. I believe that Jaguar splined hubs were modified so that the 15" Dunlop wires could be fitted in place of the Borrani 400mm wheels. Other cars in the background are: Fiat 500 (Topolino, body only), an MG-TD chassis, two Arnolt MG examples (coupe and convertible) from 1953, the nose of my mother's Morris Oxford Traveler and the tail of a unique Maserati A6G/2000 coupe Frua. There's also a Volvo 144 and a VW bus powered by a Volvo 2.0, used often as a tow vehicle on cross-country trips.
I think it was later during 1984 when 1072 was sold to a guy named Chuck Blair who worked in Concord, California.
Much later, I learned that this "1967" car (numbered "A-67GT-1072") was first sold September 20, 1966 as an unfinished example along with two other Apollo cars to Ron Kellogg of Whittier, California. This is all I know about the ownership history. I have only a portion of the original rubber trim (deteriorated) from the windshield opening and the left rear bumper. I have some earlier images shared by Ron Kellogg.
